PROGRAM (details: click here)

 

Johann Christian Schickhardt (c. 1682–1762)
Concerto in D minor for four recorders and basso continuo
Allegro
Adagio
Vivace - Allegro

 

Baroque recorder - Jennifer Tsang
巴羅克木笛 - 曾霆枝

Baroque bassoon (basso continuo) - Karen Yeung
巴羅克巴松管(數字低音)- 楊嘉倫

Harpsichord (basso continuo) - Dr. Sonia Lee
古鍵琴(數字低音)- 李敏琪博士

 

In view of the relative scarcity of eighteenth-century music for recorder ensemble, the extremely rare use of four treble recorders deserves special attention. The devotee of Baroque flute music will undoubtedly welcome these additions to his repertoire, all the more so since they present no insuperable difficulties, and their composer, who seems particularly happy in the cantabile slow movements and the high-spirited finales, knows how to occupy the four instruments almost throughout as equal partners, hardly one of whom need to feel his function to be that of pure harmonic filling.
