Notes and Editorial Reviews

A work of startling originality and richness

"***** The brilliant Swiss recorder player Maurice Steger draws on his dazzling virtuosity, his zephyr-like timbre and his range of expression to vivify a corpus of music that has so far remained relatively unexplored. A full century before Vivaldi stole the show in Venice, the city enjoyed a golden High Renaissance thanks to the presence of Giovanni Gabrieli and other composers who exploited new potential in sonority, endowing the repertoire with choral and instrumental works of startling originality and richness. Steger has investigated the legacy of this cultural blossoming.... He is complemented by a group of first-rate exponents who add a kaleidoscope of colours
Read more etched in by chitarrone, theorbo, harp, dulcian, guitar and a range of other Baroque instruments that help illuminate and animate the vim and vigour of this music.... A recital of unalloyed joy." -- Geoffrey Norris, Telegraph.co.uk
