Stefan Temmingh is a member of the new young generation of world-class recorder players. Born in Cape Town, he comes from a Dutch-South-African family of musicians and now lives in Munich. Being an early music specialist, he plays internationally with his baroque ensemble at renowned festivals and concert series, and can also be heard as a member of ensembles of all sizes in Europe, Asia and Africa. His fine playing is regularly compared to the style of the legendary Frans Brüggen.

On this collaboration with the Capricornus Consort Basel, he makes use of his wide array of technical and musical resources to render a reference version of Vivaldi’s Recorder Concertos.


... never before have I heard such a clutch of interpretations which have had me hearing each concerto as if for the first time. The clever programming helps, because the Vivaldi concertos are each framed by Bach preludes; a device that not only functions as a palette-cleanser but also reminds us of Bach’s admiration of Vivaldi, and indeed of both men’s willingness to mix sacred and secular musical ideas. ... This really is a Vivaldi recorder concerto collection in a class of its own.  Charlotte Gardner
Gramophone February 2018
