Joseph Bodin de Boismortier (1689--1755) was a French
baroque composer of instrumental music, cantatas,
opéra-ballets, and vocal music. Boismortier was one of
the first composers to have no patrons: having obtained
a royal license for engraving music in 1724, he made
enormous sums of money by publishing his music for sale
to the public.
His Sonata in G Major (Opus 44 No. 3) is from 6 Flute
Sonatas and was published in 1733 and although
originally written for flute(s) and basso continuo, I
created this unusual arrangement for Flute and Viola.
