Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Joseph Bodin de Boismortier was a highly successful French composer of instrumental and vocal music, the first independent composer without patron, publisher of his own works (which made him extremely wealthy). Jed Wentz, a superb musician as well as an excellent scholar, did extensive research into the performance practice of the French Baroque music, and based on written contemporary sources that "not even four bars have the exact duration, one is slowing down and the other is speeding up... The musician who knows his art has grasped the character of an air after four bars, and abandons himself to it: it is the pure pleasure of the harmony that suspends him; here he wants the chords to be struck, there he wants them to be veiled... " (Diderot, 1748) Not only does Jed Wentz practice what he preaches, he does so with total authority and naturalness, while always projecting his own pleasure and fun in playing these delightful sonatas. Seconding Jed Wentz are cellist Job ter Haar and eminent harpsichord player Michael Borgstede.
