Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Joseph Bodin de Boismortier created a unique collection of pieces in his Opus 15. He was a fan of the transverse flute and frequently wrote for the instrument. Stephen Schultz plays a baroque wooden flute made by a San Francisco instrument maker and patterned on a 1760 original. To my ears the timbre is just the opposite of the typical baroque violin – more mellow and less steeling-sounding than the modern metal flute...Very highly recommended!"

-- Audiophile Audition

"In a sonorous acoustic we are taken at very close quarters through these gentle yet vibrant works. Schultz's familiarity with, and confidence at fully interpreting, the music has us listening to its melodies and textures,
Read more harmonies and changes in speed and rhythm, not to the instrument itself...it's the instruments as instruments, working with varying melodies that make this a successful enterprise...shifts, surprises, delays, turns about, runs ahead and behind. Generally a very pleasing set of musical lines. But without ever trivializing, or downplaying the import of the musical invention. Perhaps Boismortier is due for a revival and more serious attention outside the world of late Baroque French specialists."
