Product Description

As part of the successful Vivaldi Edition, Naïve's 'Concerti per fagotto' is one of the rarely recorded versions of Vivaldi's Concertos for bassoon and the first dedicated to this period instrument within this collection.

This recording features a selection of the finest works for bassoon composed in the baroque music period. Vivaldi is the most significant composer ever of bassoon concertos with his own oeuvre including 39 concertos for the instrument.

Sergio Azzolini is a multi-prize winner at many international events. He is acclaimed for his recordings with major European orchestras and is a successful soloist with leading early music ensembles all over Europe. Azzolini is particularly familiar with Vivaldi's works. As a conductor, he mounted two unpublished Venetian operas including Vivaldi's La fida ninfa and worked on two other releases within the Vivaldi Edition. 'Concerti per fagotto' is a rigorous new edition of Vivaldi's work which is careful to preserve all the details found in the original manuscripts from the Venetian composer.

Personnel: Sergio Azzolini (bassoon), L'Aura Soave Cremona, Diego Cantalupi (director)

23 of 24 people found the following review helpful By Maurizio Cardelli on 24 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
The present CD is one of the most stunning recordings of the rich vivaldian discography. Albeit Klaus Thunemann with I Musici (Philips) offered (20 years ago) an excellent rendition of many concertos for bassoon by Vivaldi, and Tamàs Benkòcs has now nearly completed the registration for Naxos of the whole Vivaldi's output for the bassoon (the first 5 CDs of the series show his excellent bassoon playing), I was still left with the impression that the real richness and depth of these Vivaldi's concertos were still waiting for a true (re-)discovery. The present CD, the first one of the Naïve's Vivaldi Edition series to be entirely dedicated to the bassoon, fully centers this objective. The concertos played here are the numbers RV 493, RV 495, RV 477, RV 488, RV 503, RV 471, RV 484, and for the preparation of the present CD they have been the subject of a novel critical edition based on the original manuscripts. Sergio Azzolini plays as soloist and concertmaster with the Aurora Soave Ensemble: what you will ear is probably the most amazing bassoon playing available, accompanied by a young orchestra that reveals itself as one of the most sensitive and stylish existing baroque ensembles. Joy, melancholy, anger, grotesque and boldness are dispensed in different doses in these concertos, and are often mixed and juxtaposed (even in a same movement) to create a true kaleidoscope of emotions. Each one of these concertos is full of "dark and light" nuances, finely carved, and each one of them is depicted in its peculiar character, telling a different story: for example, RV 495 is astonishingly furious, RV 503 reminds pre-classical atmospheres, RV 471 shows joyful and never-ending imaginativeness, RV 484 (the best known concerto for bassoon) an inconsolable melancholy.Read more ›

Purchased this download for just over £5 and what a magnificent recording it is :-) It's going to be a series although not always as cheap as this but if you just want the one CD, then I'd definitely buy this for the wonderful playing!!

I just want to endorse Maurizio Cardelli's 5-star review. The playing is riveting, exciting and beautiful. The recording is dynamic, vibrant and clear. An astonishing album.

Les expectatives i el resultat han estat al mateix nivell: bon producte, bona gravació, bon intèrpret. Pense que la "Collezione Vivaldi" i "L'Istituto per i Beni Musicali in Piemonte" han dut a cap una meravellosa tasca.
Si allò que t'agrada és el fagot, tant si has oït parlar de Sergio Azzolini com si és la primera vegada que ho fas , aquest és una bona ocasió d'adquirir aquest producte.
