This is a delightful disc bringing together some of the quieter moments of Vivaldi's massive output for the chamber concerto genre.

The most famous work here is obviously the much vaunted 'La pastorella' with some delightful contributions from the young Rachel Beckett on the recorder. A Trio Sonata in A minor and a sprightly Triple Concerto for recorder, oboe and bassoon are also interesting and entertaining.

All in all this is a self recommending disc that has many virtues, not least splendid sound and an enthusiastic contribution from the Chandos Baroque Players. Helios continues to be an important budget label providing quality at outstanding value for money.
