JOHAN HELMICH ROMAN (1694-1758): 12 Sonatas for Flute and Continuo.
Catalogue Number: 01R026
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Published in 1727, these generally light and airy pieces are much closer to the new rococo style than to the complicated and busy extravagances of the high baroque. In four to six movements, they are full of attractive melodies which Roman later used in other works and as the basis for songs (as did other composers). 2 CDs. Jed Wentz (flute), Musica ad Rhenum.
