Concerti per flauto
It may come as a surprise to some that the violin was not the most frequently played instrument in the early 18th century: that distinction belongs to the recorder. Vivaldi was among the composers most sensitive to the instrument’s complex identity, as he shows in his concertos for recorder. On this disc, acclaimed virtuoso Maurice Steger offers highly impressive versions of such popular works as La pastorella, Il gardellino, and the evergreen La notte.
Obras de Froberger, d'Anglebert, Fischer, Couperin, Clérambault y Muffat
Keyboard virtuoso Andreas Staier presents Pour passer la melancolie (to pass the melancholy), a unique program of French Baroque harpsichord music. The works presented here are not simply compositions in deeply sorrowful or expressive registers, but also discourses in sound on vanity, art and music itself. Whether the composer luxuriates in melancholic disorder or attempts to remedy it, there is but a fine line here between the vanity of the world and the artist's glory. In his readings of Froberger, Fischer and Clérambault, Staier distils the fruits of this sophisticated aesthetic blend.ver
