Description: With every new Fasch release comes more confirmation of his importance as an innovator in the transitional period between the late baroque and early Classical periods. These works date from 1740-50; note particularly the delicious number and type of wind (and, in the big, celebratory D major work listed first above, brass) instruments employed (the oboe da silva is the same as the oboe da caccia). Il Gardellino.
