Italian Recorder Concertos

IR-01

‘Concerto in F3/ Allegro Assai’ by Sammartini featuring Richard Harvey (Recorder) with The London Vivaldi Orchestra.

Details

From the vigorous “Vivace” of Alessandro Scarlatti’s “Sinfonia Terza di Concerto Grosso”, to the broken chord and rapid triplet passages of Antonio Vivaldi’s “Concerto in C Minor (P 440)”, and the beauty of melody in Giuseppe Sammartini’s “ Concerto in F”, this collection reveals numerous techniques by which the composers approached the problems of balance between the flauto dolce and the orchestral strings and continuo. Demonstrating everything form neatness of passage and delicate phrasing to sheer virtuosity, Richard Harvey wins a 1982 “Classical Record of the Year” award in a brilliant sparkle of trills!

Italian Recorder Concertos: Vivaldi, Scarlatti, Sammartini Richard Harvey and the London Vivaldi Orchestra.
