Notes and Editorial Reviews
This disc is an invitation to explore one of the great attractions of Venice in the Baroque era, the famous ospedali. Among the residents of the Pietà was a girl named ‘Pellegrina,’ for whom Vivaldi wrote many of his oboe concertos. Accompanied by her colleagues of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, oboist Xenia Löffler not only breathes new life into a selection of concertos by the ‘Red Priest’ – but also several by his emulators, among them a composer of today, no less fervent in his admiration: Uri Rom.
