CHARLES DIEUPART (fl. 1701-ca.1740): 6 Sonatas for Flute and Bass.
Catalogue Number: 09U015
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Even if Dieupart had not advertised himself as a ‘scholar’ of Corelli’s, these sonatas, published in London in 1717, betray the influence of the great Roman violinist and composer in the types of movements, the varied support of the bass, and an elegant simplicity. The dance movements often have an English flavor that is reminiscent of Purcell, but otherwise Dieupart’s French heritage predominates in the lively formality of his melodies. Isabel Favilla (recorder), Roberto Alonso Álvarez (cello), Giulio Quirici (theorbo), João Rival (harpsichord).
