It appears that the Paisiello Flute Quartets were written in the early 1800s, at a time when the good bourgeoisie was increasingly proud of playing music at home: it had to satisfy its demands and produce, produce , Produce, contemporary and accessible music. The composer, best known for his hundred operas written between 1766 and 1800, his fifty works for the Chapel of Napoleon and then that of the King of Naples - Napoleon's elder brother - left us dozens of pieces Chamber music, of which these quartets of pretty design, gallant, amiable, even the minor tone of one of them (and again, the second movement is in major) does not darken the Neapolitan sun that crosses them. Gabriele Formentini, disciple of Barthold Kuijken plays on a six-keyed flute, a copy of an instrument of 1763.
