Venetian Dreams Music of Antonio Vivaldi REBEL Jörg-Michael Schwarz Matthias Maute, recorder BRIDGE 9377 Quite a musical dynamo, this recording, enough to convince me that another full-blown “Vivaldi revival” marks our times! --Audiophile Audition Venetian Dreams This recording features Vivaldi's six immensely entertaining recorder concerti, Op. 10, in performances of stunning panache and virtuosity. Praised by the Los Angeles Times for their "astonishingly vital music-making", the New York-based Baroque ensemble REBEL (pronounced "Reh-BEL") has earned an impressive international reputation. Matthias Maute, a native of Germany, is widely regarded as one of the finest recorder and traverso players of his generation. Since winning First Prize in the renowned Early Music Competition in Bruges, Belgium in 1990, his illustrious career has taken him far and wide.
More Washington Post |Elliott Cook Carter Jr. (December 11, 1908 – November 5, 2012) was a two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning American composer. He studied with Nadia Boulanger in Paris in the 1930s, and then returned to the United States. After a neoclassical phase, he went on to write atonal, rhythmically complex music. His compositions, which have been performed all over the world, include orchestral and chamber music as well as solo instrumental and vocal works. He was extremely productive in his later years, publishing more than 40 works between the ages of 90 and 100, and over 14 more after he turned 100 in 2008. His last work, 12 Short Epigrams for piano, was completed on August 13, 2012. More Wikipedia
