Maurice Steger performs recorder concertos by Vivaldi

Watch more with these video collections:

Recorders may often be thought of as a child’s first instrument. A toy. An affordable teaching tool. But recorder concertos and compositions have been written by Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Philipp Telemann, Antonio Vivaldi, and more.

Case in point: Vivaldi’s Recorder Concerto RV 443, performed in this 2017 video with intensity by Maurice Steger. He’s accompanied by the Baroque orchestra Cappella Gabetta at the Hochrhein Musikfestival in Rheinfelden, Switzerland. You may never have seen a recorder played like this.

Here’s another: Concerto in B flat major, RV 375.


Find Maurice Steger’s music on Amazon and iTunes. Cappella Gabetta is on Amazon and iTunes, too.

Next: Dicken Schrader and his kids: Depeche Mode’s Everything Counts, pop-up orchestra on a delayed plane, The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards’ Pipes and Drums, and Le Carnaval des Animaux by Camille Saint-Saëns.

Bonus: how to make a carrot clarinet.
