Concerti for Recorder & Bach-Preludes with Capricornus Consort Basel

On his new Vivaldi CD South African recorder player and ECHO Klassik Award Winner Stefan Temmingh, accompanied by Capricornus Consort Basel, has dedicated himself to one of the great Italian masters. With stupendous virtuosity but above all with profound musicality he is presenting the complete recorder concertos by Antonio Vivaldi as they have not been heard before.
In 2018 the CD was awarded an International Classical Music Award, the Editor’s Choice of Gramophone Magazine as well as the French Diapason d’or as “the new reference for this repertoire” (Diapason).
For Stefan Temmingh, these compositions are more than just concerti: They are “miniature operas” which all follow an individual dramaturgy. In order to sharpen the senses for Vivaldi and as points of calm a prelude by J. S. Bach is preceding each concerto. Thus, this CD is differing from the many other recordings due to its musical substance and its colourfulness. – Once again Stefan Temmingh is breaking new ground and is setting standards.

“A wonderful concept album, sophisticated up to the smallest ornament.”DIE ZEIT

“(…) currently one of the best and also most flamboyant recorder players. (…) an electrifying complete recording.” —  BAVARIAN RADIO, BR KLASSIK

“The playing of Stefan Temmingh fascinates from the first to the last note. (…) The fabulous Capricornus Consort Basel is playing with drive and expressivity. (…) If anyone still claims that all Vivaldi concerti sound the same, he should listen to this CD and will change his mind.” RBB KULTURRADIO
