Antonio Vivaldi’s catalog of works for bassoon are remarkable, both in number and for his soloistic treatment of an instrument previously confined to accompaniment. Seven bassoon concertos here join the twenty-six already recorded in the first four volumes in the Naïve label’s Vivaldi Edition. The long-running project is devoted to newly rediscovered manuscripts of Vivaldi’s works housed at the Turin National Library. The Italian bassoonist Sergio Azzolini and his ensemble L’Onda Armonica renew their commitment to the repertoire, with its virtuoso demands not just on the soloist but also on the orchestra.
