Notes & Reviews:

The transverse flute was especially popular at the French court in the early 18th century. At the same time, Italian tastes were finding their way into Paris. The French flute virtuosos - especially Blavet and Buffardin - seized on this trend with Italian-inspired flute concertos. Frank Theuns and his ensemble Les Buffardins offer an overview of the development of the late-baroque transverse flute repertoire in France, introducing concertos by such great composers of the age as Jean-Marie Leclair, Michel Blavet, Pierre Gabriel Buffardin and Jacques Christophe Naudot.
