30 second preview

What better way to start a recording then with Ferdinand Küchler's Concertino in D, op.15 'in the style of Vivaldi'!

As the title says, Küchler wrote this concertino reminiscing of the great italian composer and violinist Antonio Vivaldi.

The first movement starts with the solo violin playing a happy tune which we will hear several times during the piece. The music is a constant dialogue between the solo violin and orchestra. It is written in a truly Baroque manner. A special addition to the orchestra is the harpsichord!

Performers are Bibi Pelić, violin and the Atlantis Orchestra Prague conducted by Vitêzslav Podrazil.

An arrangement of the Siciliano is available for the CelloViolaFlute and Clarinet.
