Notes and Editorial Reviews
For this, the first in a series of five discs of Vivaldi ’s bassoon concerti, Nadina Mackie Jackson has selected eight works in nearly as many keys. With the invaluable scholarship of Nicholas McGegan, she created her own performing editions directly from the Turin manuscripts. They are all in the familiar three-movement fast-slow-fast configuration, but show an amazing variety of compositional style and musical affect.
This recording is Nadina’s tenth solo cd title, and she can also be heard on over 100 orchestral and chamber music recordings on a multitude of international labels. The Vivaldi Bassoon Concerti project will comprise five discs and will feature many of the great artists that Nadina has met upon her path.
