Notes & Reviews:

Vivaldi seems to have been partial to the particular ensemble of flute, oboe, violin, and bassoon accompanied by the basso continuo, for he wrote ten concertos for this combination of instruments. Having studied these works assiduously and in depth, we can only regret that he composed so few of them - or that so few have come down to us. With this new release, La Pastorella presents some of the finer works of the Venetian master to a new generation of listeners.

”The performances are wide awake, yet relaxed. No one is trying to show off. The music-making is like an afternoon spent home with friends. Try the slow movement of concerto No. 11, and see if you don’t enjoy hearing the recorder sing with light melancholy to the accompaniment of the organ and theorbo. De Roos’s recorder has a likeable timbre, and he blends it beautifully with the other instrumentsThis is lovely, innovative, low-pressure Vivaldi.”-Fanfare
