Boismortier O. 29 may well have been the first set of sonatas written specifically for two oboes without bass ever to appear in print. Similar in style and form to the various sets of sonatas for two flutes without bass that the composer had already published prior to 1730, Op. 29 also drew inspiration from the relationship between the oboe and the military that had existed since the time of Lully. These virtually unknown sonatas are more than competently written for the baroque (and modern) instrument, and they constitute a hitherto neglected treasure within the sparse repertory of works intended for a pair of unaccompanied oboes.
