Notes & Reviews:

Following the successful Volume 1 of the series of concerti for bassoon (OP30496), here is a new series of 7 exhilarating concertos, performed by the amazing Sergio Azzolini.

International Record Review
The performances are very much in the modern Italian manner: period instruments played with gusto, a terrific sense of attack pervading outer movements. Azzolini burbles and rasps away merrily, yet there's poetry aplenty in slow movements, where he displays an unsurpassed palette of tonal colour... [I] cannot imagine these concertos better played, with such infectious exuberance.

Gramophone Magazine
Azzolini is on excellent form again and seems to have lost none of the infectious eagerness with which he started out... [He] catches all these moods and is everywhere tireless in avoidance of the routine - listen to the dramatic pause before the last ritornello in RV496, where others might simply have ploughed on head-down... Has anyone ever grabbed hold of this music so wholeheartedly?

Classical Music, 2nd June 2012
A tour de force, Azzolini's command of these concertos is breathtaking, maximising the power of Vivaldi's music with an expressive palette beyond that often expected of period instruments...Azzolini switches effortlessly from full-blooded pyrotechnics to heart-rending pathos, always capturing the prevailing mood of the writing...L'Aura Soave Cremona matches Azzolini's verve and panache at every step.

Early Music Today, 2nd June 2012
Azzolini's command of these concertos is breathtaking, maximising the power of Vivaldi's music with an expressive palette byeond that often expected of period instruments...Azzolini switches effortlessly from full-blooded pyrotechnics to heart-rending pathos, always capturing the prevailing mood of the writing.
