Notes & Reviews:

Little is known about Jean Baptiste Loeillet de Gant's life, but his solo recorder sonatas have retained their popularity from their origins in the Baroque period to the present day. Strongly influenced by the violin sonatas of Corelli, these pieces combine Italian and French characteristics to create expressive and virtuoso chamber music of the greatest elegance and finesse. Daniel Rothert brings his "warm, refined tone" (American Record Guide) to a selection of the best sonatas from Opp. I-IV.

Daniel Rothert has served as an ensemble-player and soloist with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra since 1999, participating in recordings for Naxos of the complete orchestral works of J.S. Bach and concertos by Telemann.

Ritmo
This recording offers a selection of eight sonatas culled from the four mentioned collections, in a truly masterful performance, both solo and their companions. I know that forty-eight sonatas are many sonatas, but played so well, I wish this album had its sequels

Fanfare
Daniel Rothert... plays with sweet, beguiling, liquid tone, and the most rapid passagework holds no terrors for his agile tongue and fingers. Keith Haugsand and Vanessa Young provide vital and skilled support in the continuo parts, and the recorded sound is fine. ... all lovers of recorder music should snap this up forthwith.

WETA
the eight recorder sonatas on this new release from Naxos are delightful Baroque gems, much influenced by the Op. 5 violin sonatas of Arcangelo Corelli.
