Notes & Reviews:

Robert King leads his King's Consort on this reissue of colorful and imaginative concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. The term con molti istromenti (Vivaldi's own) refers not so much to the literal number of instruments involved as to their variety and unusual deployment. For an Italian concerto of the period to use wind instruments at all would be unusual; Vivaldi combines recorders, oboes, chalumeaux, horns and bassoons alongside a wide-ranging complement of strings, itself including viole all'inglese and the even more obscure violins in tromba marina.
