The Baroque Recorder Concerto
Format: COMPACT DISC
SCHNEIDER CAPPELLA ACADEMICA FRANKFURT LA STAGIONE FRANKFURT CAMERATA KOLN
CPO’s unique anthology of Baroque flute concertos contains not only the recording label’s sensational collections featuring virtuoso recorder concertos of the German, Italian, and English Baroque but also the complete solo recorder concertos of Georg Philipp Telemann, Alessandro Scarlatti, and Antonio Vivaldi. Telemann’s two so very different Concertos in F major and C major, for example, number among the most outstanding Baroque compositions of all for the recorder in a concerto role. Michael Schneider currently has no real rivals- worldwide- on his instrument. In his hands the recorder loses what so often limits its expressive capacity and gains a voice articulating all the musical facets. The complete eighteenth-century repertoire of recorder concertos, or most of it, is now available in performances by Schneider. Listening pleasure and astonishment are guaranteed for all!
