'In Paris at the end of the Baroque era and with the rising bourgeoisie, a new era dawned for composers after the death of king Louis XIV. Joseph Bodin de Boismortier was in the right place at the right time and knew how to meet the burgeoning demand with a nimble pen. He wrote a vast amount of gallant, easily playable chamber music, which he also published himself in a unique way of his time.'
