Notes & Reviews:

Unlike the violin, cello, or bassoon, the recorder is featured in only a handful of concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. And yet they continue - at least in the category of technique - to represent the greatest challenge in the baroque repertoire for each and every recorder player. When Vivaldi wrote for instruments other than his own, he either observed the technical limits known to him or transferred them to his made-for-the-violin idiom, a language marked by a gigantic tonal gamut and the presence of four strings - whether or not there were models for this in their respective repertoires. The result is a concerto repertoire that is madly virtuosic in technique and musically of the greatest variety.
