Notes & Reviews:

The French composer Joseph Bodin de Boismortier, unlike his near-contemporary Bach, wrote music, and much of it, that, opposing the profound, inward-looking manner of Bach, exhibits a cheerful, somewhat superficial outlook very much interested in worldly matters of kings and courts. In the end, his efforts paid off handsomely, earning him today's equivalent of two million dollars during his life. His bold idea heard here, one that violated the composing precepts of his age, of scoring sonatas for two melodic instruments, are rounded off by later works of others using the same instrumentation.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
All the selections are works for flute (Valerio) and violin (Katharina), played by a duo I assume are husband and wife. Boismortier's sonatas date from 1734 and Molique's duet from 1824. Genzmer's Divertimento is from 1962, and Takacs's set of 11 variations is from 1980. Thus this program covers a range of times and musical styles, and the last six variations from Takacs are dedicated to famous composers. This is a varied and interesting program played with superb accuracy and professionalism. Flutists and violinists will immediately want to try at least one of the pieces and perhaps more.
