We’ve had a great few rehearsals working way through this interesting and rich repertoire. It is a wonderful program of which we are very proud. We hope you can join us this coming Sunday.
Answer: Born in the province of Lorraine, Joseph Bodin de Boismortier moved to Paris with his wife in 1724. There began his somewhat prodigious career as a composer. In 1780, the music theorist Jean-Benjamin de la Bord wrote: “Happy be Boismortier whose fertile pen can give birth without pain to a whole new book of piece or music every month.”
To those critical of his undoubted fecundity Boismortier would simply answer: “I am earning money!”
