Whilst trudging down the road of Baroque music and searching for stuff on instruments that appear in ensembles I thought I would share this with you.

If your Vivaldi stops with The Four Seasons and you like that then I think that you will find this fun:

Concerto in C major "con molti stromenti" RV 558



Generaly unfamiliar instruments played are, chalumeau as in the Chalumeau Solo-Suite by Boismortier , chalumeau is pronounced shallumao, theorbo "Kapsberger" for Theorbo played by N. Amos and violin in "tromba marino" Tromba Marina

Look out for other versions of RV 558 including one by Mike Oldfield.

My favourite version is by the English Concert with Trevor Pinnock and Simon Standage. Another accomplished baroque violinist is Rachel Podger who has recorded some fine Bach Sonatas with Trevor Pinnock at the harpsichord.

The use of period instruments makes so much difference and is why another fine orchestra Europa Galante - leader Fabio Biondi produce such fine Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Bach and Boccherini, the latter composer writing the following with which you are probably familiar. Many people who have never heard of Boccherini know this piece, certainly in UK where it was often played whilst school was filling the assembly hall at the start of every day:

Luigi Boccherini: Minuetto

EDIT

PS. How about this strange beast:

John Doan plays Fernando Sor Harpolyre 1830

And now for the Harpolyre:

The artist remarks, at 1:39, 'You may notice that odd times I am closing my eyes when I play, because when I look down I - it really freaks me out to see so many strings... .'
