Rosetti: Bassoon Concertos

Best remembered for his often original writing for wind instruments, in particular the horn, Rosetti was a prolific composer of symphonies, concertos, chamber music and choral works, and was considered by many of his contemporaries to be the equal of Haydn and Mozart. Rosetti composed five bassoon concertos, three of which are here recorded for the first time. These technically demanding works are noteworthy for long arching melodies in the slow movements framed by inventive and lively outer movements.
