JOHAN HELMICH ROMAN (1694-1758): Flute Sonatas Nos. 1-5, BeRI 201-205.
Catalogue Number: 03Q024
Format: SACD hybrid
Description: Published in 1727, these generally light and airy pieces, in four to six movements and full of attractive melodies, are much closer to the new rococo style than to the complicated and busy extravagances of the high baroque. We offered a complete Naxos recording of all 12 six years ago but, since BIS is apparently embarking upon a Roman series and since the Naxos used a transverse flute and BIS a recorder, we also make this new release available. Dan Laurin (recorder), Paradiso Musicale (harpsichord, cello and baroque guitar).
