Vivaldi: Bassoon Concertos
MSR Classics MS-1451
Vivaldi: Bassoon Concerto in E minor, R 484 (10:08)
Nadina Mackie Jackson, bassoon; Ensemble / Nicholas McGegan
For this, the first in a series of five discs of Vivaldi ’s bassoon concertos, Nadina Mackie Jackson has selected eight works in nearly as many keys. With the invaluable scholarship of Nicholas McGegan, she created her own performing editions directly from the Turin manuscripts. They are all in the familiar three-movement fast-slow-fast configuration, but show an amazing variety of compositional style and musical affect.
