Notes & Reviews:
There are some superb concertos in Vivaldi's large output, and some of them were sufficiently striking enough to attract the attention of J.S. Bach and Johann Quantz. His concertos are remarkable not only for the wealth of invention and the outstanding quality of the music, but also for the amazing range of instruments he wrote for. This CD, a new recording made in January 2009, is devoted to concertos for sopranino and alto recorders. Two of his greatest concertos: 'Tempesta di mare' (Storm at Sea) and 'La notte' (Night) feature on the program. The booklet notes contain fascinating contemporary accounts of Vivaldi, including extracts from his letters. Erik Bosgraaf has led a colorful musical career - from rock musician, to oboist, then virtuoso recorder player. In 2009 he was awarded the prestigious Borletti-Buitoni Trust award.
