The recorder’s heyday was the early Baroque period. In fact, until the 18th Century the recorder was known simply as ‘flauto’ (flute), while the instrument we today call the flute bore the specific name ‘flauto traverso’ (transverse flute), a confusion in terminology that has often led to compositions addressed to the recorder (flauto) being performed on modern flute. Der Fluyten Lust-Hof by Jacob Van Eyck is the most extensive collection of music for a solo wind instrument by a single composer, and the first three discs in this set are devoted to a selection of highlights from this monumental work. Although written for amateur players, the compositions attest to the high standard of musicianship in Utrecht, with technical demands that are challenging even by modern standards. The technique of variation by diminution used by Van Eyck had previously been employed byBaroque composers such as G.P. Cima, Fontana and Castello. The recorder’s tonal purity and exceptional blend in ensemble makes it marvellously suited for adaptations of music originally written for other instrumental combinations. Examples from the early Italian repertoire include the Palestrina ricercar, capriccios by Frescobaldi and canzonas by Gabrieli, Merula and Trabaci. The Elizabethan period was a golden era for English composers. Among the most popular are Byrd, Dowland, Gibbons and Tallis, but there are many magnificent compositions by less familiar names such as Johnson, Tye and Ward. These composers often used popular songs such as ‘Browning’, and favoured melodies from sacred music such as the ubiquitous Taverner Mass ‘In Nomine’, as the basis for consort pieces, typically typically intended for a chest of viols, but again, very successful performed by a choir of recorders. After Van Eyck, A. Scarlatti is among the Baroque composers contributing substantially to this set, along with Telemann, Vivaldi, J.S. and C.P.E Bach, Quantz, Handel, Fiorenza, Giuseppe Sammartini, the prolific Mancini, and even a Vivaldi imposter! Il Pastor fido, previously attributed to Vivaldi, is now known to have been composed by Chédeville, who conspired to publish his composition under Vivaldi’s name in an attempt to gain a wider audience. The set closes with a final CD containing a microcosm of the five centuries spanned by the collection as a whole, featuring arrangements for recorder consort of a great variety of music from Renaissance composers through to those living and writing today. An extensive collection of music for recorder, in repertoire ranging from solo, chamber music to concertos. The history of the recorder goes back many centuries. The recorder’s restricted dynamics are amply compensated by its endless differentations in tone, colours and even pitch. Although the 19th century ignored the instrument, composers in the 20th century rediscovered its unique tone and instrumental possibilities. This collection offers a wide array of music composed for the recorder, starting with the most famous collection “Der Fluyten Lusthof” by Van Eyck, through the 17th and 18th century with its champions Sammartini, Telemann, Fiorenza, Handel, Quantz, ending in the 20th century. Played by the foremost recorder players of today: Erik Bosgraaf, Corina Marti, Marion Verbruggen, Lorenzo Cavasanti, Manuel Staropoli, Stefano Bagliano and many more. The booklet contains newly written liner notes by Philip Borg-Wheeler.
