Description: This collection, performed by a young, award-winning Canadian recorder virtuoso (this recording was one of his prizes), surveys the virtuoso Italian repertoire of the early 16th century, most of it written for violin but, as often, suitable for the recorder which itself benefitted from the flowering of this genre. Vincent Lauzer (recorder), Mark Edwards (harpsichord, organ).
