Vivaldi - Five Concertos for Bassoon, Strings and Basso Continuo - Valery Popov (bassoon)

Vivaldi - Five Concertos for Bassoon, Strings and Basso Continuo - Valery Popov (bassoon)
ID: MELCD1002098
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Basson

Firma Melodiya is happy to present a rare gem of Baroque music - concertos for bassoon and strings by Vivaldi.

Mostly known for his violin compositions, Vivaldi paid homage to virtually all musical instruments that existed in Italy’s everyday music life of the time. Five bassoon pieces stand out among his numerous concertos for wind instruments.

An unusual combination of bassoon and strings inspired Vivaldi to create amazingly plastic and picturesque works. Composed in virtuoso concerto traditions, they demand supreme mastery from a performer. The finesse and elegance of their melodic patterns rooted in Italian bel canto, their strongly pronounced concerto element with a multitude of solo and tutti, forte and piano shades so typical of Vivaldi won’t leave a responsive listener indifferent. Vivaldi’s concertos are performed by Valery Popov, a brilliant virtuoso bassoonist, one of the best representatives of Russian performing school of wind instruments. Coming of a family of musicians, a prize winner of international competitions, a long-standing soloist of the USSR State Academic Symphony Orchestra, and a professor of the Moscow Conservatory, he has made more than a hundred recordings of Baroque, classical and contemporary music. This recording made at the music festival in Polotsk, Belarus, in 1989 also features the Minsk Chamber Orchestra led by Valery Polyansky.

Parapraxis - Works for Bassoon, Orchestra & Choir

Parapraxis - Works for Bassoon, Orchestra & Choir
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Basson

A seductive and fascinating disc for fans of contemporary music, this collection of works for Bassoon with choir and orchestra feature works by British composer Stephen Frost and Norwegian composer Kjell Mørk Karlsen.

The disc’s title work Parapraxis, for solo bassoon and choir, melds together a mix of sacred latin text and secular English poetry, pushing and playing with the illusory ‘boundary’ that seems to exist between the two. The other two works - Frost’s Bassoon Concerto and Karlsen’s Serenata - are beguiling and stimulating pieces that show off the talents of Norwegian bassoonist Sigyn Birkeland and the Belarusian State Chamber Orchestra.

In demand as a soloist, Sigyn Birkeland has been Principal Bassoon in the Norwegian Radio Orchestra since 1992. She continues to champion the instrument by commissioning, performing and recording new works for the instrument in a variety of unique ensembles and settings.
