La Pastorella, Frédéric de Roos

We have already explored the works Vivaldi composed for this particular ensemble of flute, oboe, violin and bassoon accompanied by the basso continuo on an earlier recording; Vivaldi seems to have been partial to such an ensemble, for he wrote ten concertos for this combination of instruments. Having studied these works assiduously and in depth, I can only regret that Vivaldi composed so few of them - or that so few of them have come down to us. Why should we not continue and extend what he had so clearly envisaged and adapt some of the finer works of the Venetian master for our ensemble?
