Vivaldi Concerto for Flute in G minor ‘La notte’, Op. 10 No. 2

 

This programme of concertos and transcriptions explores the full emotional gamut of baroque music, from the heartbreaking beauty of Bach’s ‘Erbarme dich’ to the many extrovert moods of Vivaldi’s ‘La notte’ concerto.

Young recorder-player Lucie Horsch is already in demand internationally as a soloist and, with a critically-acclaimed solo album to her name, has launched what promises to be a distinguished career.

Now in his 12th season as AAM’s music director, harpsichordist Richard Egarr still continues to surprise and excite audiences with his technique and his instinctive musicality. Here he demonstrates both in two of Bach’s finest keyboard concertos.

“The young musician ... once again demonstrates her confidence and genuine fascination for her instrument, from which she creates sounds that one - way too hastily - probably wouldn’t have expected to be possible.”
