Notes & Reviews:

Following our collection of German baroque virtuosic recorder concertos two years ago, Michael Schneider now turns to baroque Italy. Schneider shows just what wonderful recorder discoveries can be made in Italy in addition to Vivaldi's works, which he has also presented on cpo.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Schneider plays five instruments among the eight selections. One of them is an alto recorder in G; the usual pitch is F (and he plays two of those). The Cappella Academica Frankfurt is a period-instrument ensemble composed of faculty and a select students and graduates of the College of Music where Schneider teaches and directs the Department of Historical Interpretation. This playing is top-notch and the sound is too. As in the German installment, three of these selections are new to disc: works by Tartini, Vinci, and Hasse.
