Vivaldi: Il Flauto Dolce
Vivaldi: Il Flauto Dolce (ABC Classics 461 828-2)
SKU: 01436
AU $27.22

Label: ABC Classics Cat. No.: 461 828-2 Medium: CD No. Discs: 1

An instrumental opera for recorder and orchestra. An original concept conceived by and starring Australian virtuoso recorder player, Genevieve Lacey, taking segments from both vocal and instrumental works by Vivaldi to create a 'pasticcio', in this case a sort of opera without words. A 'pasticcio' is defined as a work or style produced by borrowing fragments, ingredients, or motifs from various sources; a potpourri.

"This album is a genuinely illuminating and remarkably successful exploration of the music of Vivaldi... Apart from the swooning eloquence of Lacey's recorders in slow and expressively charged music (and her corresponding brilliance in fast movements), the ABO is in a state of tiptoe alertness. The disc, in short, is an absolute winner... likely to attract notice and emulation around the world." - Sydney Morning Herald.

"One of the most inspired baroque music recordings to be made in Australia for a long time... extraordinary recorder player Genevieve Lacey... You are unlikely to hear more affecting recorder playing anywhere." - The Age (Melbourne).

"...prodigiously talented, young creator... surely ranks as one of the most enjoyable additions in many years to classical music's vast repertoire... characteristic Vivaldian vibrancy... Il Flauto Dolce is a compulsory acquisition - pronto!" - Sunday Herald Sun (Melbourne).
