Notes & Reviews:

Swedish Baroque composer Johan Helmich Roman (1694-1758) has been called both "the father of Swedish music," and "the Swedish Handel." He led the Swedish Opera throughout Sweden's Age of Liberty, and enjoyed a successful compositional career. During Roman's lifetime, the most common wind instrument in Stockholm was the recorder. The instrument was utilized in every aspect of musical life. The transverse flute, however, was reserved for the noble and upper classes. While Roman's sonatas were originally composed for a bourgeoisie performance on transverse flute, Dan Laurin performs these beautiful works on the recorder. In his liner notes, he describes his affection for Roman's music: "complex emotional contexts are contrasted with folk music forms such as the villanelle or piva- the music is asymmetrical, irregular and full of unexpected twists, sudden pauses and cadences."
