About

Lucie Horsch is a brilliant young recorder virtuoso from Amsterdam. Still only 17, she began playing the recorder aged 5, winning numerous prizes and representing the Netherlands at Eurovision 2014 Young Musician of the Year in Cologne. In 2016 she was awarded the Concertgebouw Young Talent Award, presented to her by Sir John Eliot Gardiner.
 
For her debut Decca album Lucie has chosen to record an all-Vivaldi programme: “I love the music of Vivaldi,” she writes, “it’s rhythmical, light, energetic and the slow movements are utterly beautiful”.
 
Four famous concertos – including La notte and La tempesta di mare – are recorded alongside transcriptions of some of Vivaldi’s best-loved melodies, including ‘Cum Dederit’ from the Nisi Dominus and the aria ‘Vedro con mio diletto’ from the opera Giustino. A bonus is the first movement of ‘Spring’ from The Four Seasons transcribed in 1775 by Jean Jacques Rousseau.
 
Lucie is joined by the hand-picked Amsterdam Vivaldi Players led by Candida Thompson and including Gregor Horsch, Lucie’s father and principal cellist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
