I have three different CDs of the Vivaldi Basson Concertos, and this is far and away the best. Michael McCraw plays with astounding sensitivity, and a beautiful range of colours.
Really, one of my favourite buys in a long while.

One of the most in-demand and respected Baroque bassoonists in the world, Michael McCraw presents these well-known bassoon concertos by Vivaldi but on an instrument that more resembles the bassoon Vivaldi may have been composing for. The lovely, dark sound of the Baroque bassoon makes the idiomatic concertos come to life. Thouroughly understanding the Baroque style, McCraw employs historical performance practices, such as ornamentation, accent, and articulation to make this a must-have for your collection.

It is a true joy to hear Vivaldi performed as it was meant to be!
Michael McCraw's historical expertise and talent shine through in this period recording of Vivaldi's Bassoon Concerti. In a world flooded with modern interpretations of Vivaldi, this is truely a refreshing treasure for anyone, especially bassoonists.

Michael McCraw's performance of Vivaldi concerti on this CD will leave you speechless. Even if you are an avid listener of Vivaldi or a bassoonist- it is as if you have never heard these works before. McCraw's interpretation of these concerti is impeccably tasteful and the spirit with which they are performed is immediately felt by the listener. This CD is a MUST have for everyone who loves music.
