Over the past decades, Dan Laurin has established himself as one of the most interesting recorder players of our time. The first recordings Laurin made for the BIS label were of duets by Georg Philipp Telemann, and since then he has returned to the composer several times, recording chamber music and concertos. It is only now that he has set the complete sonatas on disc – works that he describes in his liner notes as forming part of most recorder players’ “musical DNA.” Performing them here with his regular chamber music partners, Anna Paradiso and Mats Olofsson, Laurin revels in the wide technical and emotional scope of the sonatas as well as their stylistic diversity.
