product description

for alto recorder, 2 violins, viola, & b. c. (Durata: 17’), edited as first edition by Klaus Hofmann. This late-Baroque concerto is a sibling work of the well-known G-Major Concerto for recorder by J. C. Schultze. The composer, who as a result of being confused with a younger Berlin composer of the same name has been assigned to the generation of J. Haydn and J. C. Bach, was presumably born ca. 1700. Probably a recorder player himself, the composer virtually custom-tailored the solo part for the instrument, but the technical difficulties are by no means excessive. A very interesting enrichment to the recorder repertoire. First recording through Dorothee Oberlinger and the Ensemble 1700 (Deutsche Harmonia Mundi, Nr. 6062271) Series Recorders Library

Für Blockflötisten stellt dieses Konzert eine willkommene Bereicherung des Repertoires dar, auch wenn – oder allenfalls: weil – sich die technischen Ansprüche in Grenzen halten.“  SCHWEIZER MUSIKZEITUNG, 08/2017
