To this day, Venice is one of the European cities that exerts an extraordinary attraction on tourists, and if you trace its history back, it underwent a development from the 15th to the 18th century in particular that predestined it to become a music metropolis. But what is the attraction of Venetian music? Probably the freshness, open-heartedness and lively bustle of the people with their informal and open-minded disposition, living in a harbour city that opened up to the world early on thanks to its location on the Mediterranean and blossomed through international trade. Without a doubt, only Vivaldi's music is able to convey these essential elements to us contemporary people in an easily understandable and simple way. Miho Fukio (baroque bassoon) plays the 3rd CD here, together with Dominik Wörner (bass) and the Ensemble F. This CD represents the endeavor to bring together and present Antonio Vivaldi's (1678-1741) bassoon concertos with the bass arias from his operas, which are closely related to the bassoon repertoire.
