Joseph Bodin de Boismortier

Joseph Bodin de Boismortier (1689-1755) was a French Baroque composer writing a wealth of instrumental and vocal music. He was one of the first composers to have no patrons, having been awarded a royal licence to engrave music in 1724, and became a wealthy man from the sales of his music.

Boismortier was a prolific composer and he, alongside Rameau, lived through the Rococo age of Louis XV both writing music of great elegance and sophistication which proved popular with performers and audiences alike.
