Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto in c (RV441)
We would like to call this a ‘lagoon’ concerto because the soft tutti sounds of the orchestra remind us of the calm rhythm of the strong waves of the Venetian lagoon in all its splendour. The horizon is wide, distant, slightly wavy. It’s sunny and the sound of the flute raises high above all this. The solo takes the calm pace of an albatross and follows every now and then the more nervous flow of a seagull or a cormorant. By times, the solo lines even compare to kingfisher that throws itself quickly into the waves in search of its prey. Due to the extreme speed, the recorder's sound becomes aggressive, almost recalling percussive sounds. Luckily, the orchestra’s enigmatic playing is embedded in calmness reminding us of the most magical city of the world… This ‘lagoon’ concert is a true masterpiece.
