Scott Goff: Concerto Grossi Opus 6: Nos 1 & 6 & 9 / Flute Cto
Artist: Scott Goff
Title: Concerto Grossi Opus 6: Nos 1 & 6 & 9 / Flute Cto
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS
Handel's Concerti Grossi, Op. 6 are written for small solo string ensemble and orchestra, a combination which invites elegant interplay between like-sounding but distinctive groups. Nicknamed Il gardellino, or 'The Goldfinch', Vivaldi's Flute Concerto is as filled with charming melody and sounds from nature as anything in the Four Seasons. Possibly written for King Frederick the Great, the easy grace of C.P.E. Bach's Flute Concerto in D minor has a surprisingly dramatic and virtuoso finale. This recording brings together leading soloists of the Seattle Symphony in a feast of 18th century refinement.
