Notes & Reviews:

Loiselle and Boucher have selected transcriptions for cello and organ of some Vivaldi's well-known works. Loiselle appears regularly at various music festivals and events in Canada and has played as a guest soloist with many different orchestras. Vincent Boucher is a very active recitalist. In 2002 he was awarded the prestigious Prix d'Europe by the Académie de musique du Québec.

"The subtitle is "works for cello and organ". You are probably saying, as I did, "What? I didn't know Vivaldi wrote any works for cello and organ." He didn't. Nonetheless, this delightful and unusual Vivaldi program makes a convincing case for a practice so common it wasn't even remarkable in Vivaldi's time: transcribingIncluded here are two quite familiar transcriptions that J.S. Bach did (Violin Concertos in A minor/R 522, and G major/R310)The musicians...did the other transcriptions themselvesThese transcriptions really work; you would think that the first movement of the Stabat Mater had been written for cello and organ. Both musicians are extraordinarily capableI think you will enjoy this novel and charming program." - American Record Guide
