The first edition of these duos for bass instruments, published in Paris in 1737, has the title: 'Petites Sonates / Suivies d'une Chaconne / Pour deux Bassons, Violoncelles, ou Violes. / Par Mr. Boismortier. / Oeuvre soixantes sixième. '
The well-crafted, technically not too difficult sonatas do not necessarily have to be performed by similar bass instruments. The bassoon / violoncello, bassoon / viola da gamba and cello / viola da gamba instrumentations also sound good.
