The brightest light came from Maurice Steger, a recorder player in a million, in Telemann, Sammartini and a wizard Vivaldi encore. Neat and spry, with the sartorial air of an early Beatle (well, he is Swiss), he carried the audience away with his gracious delivery and liquid, mercurial tone.

What makes this CD indispensable can be found in the two works for recorder performed by Maurice Steger. The phrasing in the Suite in A Minor is more than astounding; and he plays les Plaisirs with splendid, cat-like dynamics. The Overture is particularly remarkable – it is filled with rhythmic force and delicate poetry.
