Well, I'm embarrassed all round. Firstly, here's a composer, Pietro Castrucci, of whom I'd never heard, and he's absolutely lovely. I'm embarrassed not to have come across him. And I realise I haven't been listening to Clara Cowley, which was also a mistake. And I'm also embarrassed because after years of complaining that music stopped around 1800, I've been absolutely captivated by a piece by Nicola Termoehlen, who even has a website (which I'm pretty sure makes her post-baroque). Ah well, you're never too old to learn.

I just read what Clara Cowley wrote about Castrucci on that YouTube recording. Ooooh!

I'm puzzled. Why is John Baston's second concerto for recorder and violins described as in "C" when so far as I can see it's scored for 6th flute (which is lowest-note D I think?) apparently in the key of F? Is this one of those fingering/transposition things that make my head get all confused? (Here, in a nicer recording, the same piece is described as his concerto no. 2 in D for descant recorder, and is indeed higher).

However, thanks for the post, Castrucci a new name to me too.

who do you always return to? There are performers who are flashy, who seduce me, who amaze me. Then there are some to whom I will always return because although they don't flash at me, they just get everything right. This is Dorothee Oberlinger playing Corelli; it's expressive, beautiful, lively when it should be, calm when it should be, and it is so accurate. Every note is exactly right. The recording is top-notch too, the clarity superb, and the three performers perfectly balanced. I am full of admiration, happy, and wishing I could learn a fraction of what there is to learn from this.
