Notes and Editorial Reviews

18th Century Venice had a unique system of social support that brought great economic, social and cultural benefits to the "Floating City". Among the services offered Venice's poor were a network of orphanages, including the Ospedale della pietà which served as the highest-ranking school of music in the eighteenth century. It was here that Antonio Vivaldi composed his many concertos for "his" orphan girls. The orchestra and Vivaldi himself became increasingly famous throughout Europe. The musicians of the orchestra were masters of their craft, as you can hear from the quality and technical demands made on the players. Whether it's the Bassoon Concerto RV 504, the Oboe Concerto RV 450, the Chamber Concerto RV 99 or Read more the Flute Concerto RV 429, - the highest level of expression is always required in addition to the sheer virtuosity, and the Baroque Soloists Munich approaches each challenge without hesitation or compromise. This is a beautifully performed CD featuring a program of rare and exquisite works from the pen of the "Red Priest." - Hanssler Classic Read less
