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 to 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 RV504, the Oboe Concerto RV450, the Chamber Concerto RV99 or the Flute Concerto RV429, the highest level of expression is always required in addition to sheer virtuosity, and the Baroque Soloists Munich approache 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'.
