A superb double album featuring the cornerstones of the recorder’s baroque repertoire, performed by Piers Adams in his 1989 debut recordings, which still compel today.  The unadulterated virtuosity of the Vivaldi is undimmed across the decades, as a youthful Adams proved himself more than a match for the very best players of the day, bringing his own individual sparkle to these monumental works and earning multiple awards from the music press.   The Handel sonatas provide an elegant foil.


Piers Adams’ truly excellent disc... might serve as an example of ‘How To Record Baroque Concerti’... The recorder playing combines profound musicianship with an extrovert but never domineering musical personality and a technique which every so often defies belief.”
CD REVIEW March 1994

Piers Adams is one of the brightest of the rising stars... a mature and charismatic performer.”

"The most remarkable ambassador for the recorder I have ever heard... combines profound musicianship with an extrovert but never domineering virtuoso personality, and a technique which every so often defies belief."
