Notes & Reviews:

The authorship of these Recorder Sonatas are worthy of a character study involving deception at its core making these perhaps as much historic curios as works to be considered. Written by the musette player and composer of some note, Nicolas Chedeville submitted a grouping of his compositions, attributed them to Vivaldi for greater profits, and only in 1990 was definitive proof established of the subterfuge. The shrouded provenance of these sonatas are contrasted with solid performances by the Ensemble Pro Musica along with noted Early Music soloists, Stefano Bagliano (recorder), Andrea Coen (harpsichord and organ). With extensive liner notes.

American Record Guide, May/June 2016
I have praised Stefano Bagliano in these pages before (July/Aug 2012: 231; Fiorenza in Nov/Dec 2010). He plays mostly alto recorder with the occasional switch. Fabiano Martignago joins him on bass recorder and two others on cello and harpsichord alternating with organ. They give a delightful trip to the country we now call Italy as seen through French eyes in the late 1730s. The combination of bass recorder with organ (as opposed to harpsichord) is considerably more cloudy than crisp, so the varied continuo helps maintain the interest. Tempos are chosen well, and most indications are not extremely rapid, with "Allegro ma non presto" appearing several times. The original publication read "Sonatas for musette (bagpipe), vielle, flute, oboe, violin", so they have been recorded many different ways over the years. If you might like them this way, go ahead!
