In the ‘holy year’ of 1725, the most famous flautist of his time, J. J. Quantz, visited Naples. He inspired a host of sonatas and concertos by the great Alessandro Scarlatti and his most talented successors. Now Maurice Steger brings these treasures back to life, drawing on a Neapolitan collection dating from 1725. He has assembled the leading specialists in the genre, whom you can see in the enthralling DVD included here. The result is dazzling, poetic, in a word, masterly.

Maurice Steger has succeeded in establishing himself as one of the most popular soloists in the early music field. His lively manner and his personal, spontaneous and technically brilliant style of playing have helped to revive the recorder as an instrument and give it an entirely new place in the musical world. He has been acclaimed as "the Roger Federer of the recorder.” by IRR

"Steger is on stunning form on this endlessly fascinating recital … An astonishingly gifted musician, who produces a range of colours and sonorities from his recorders that few others can match. … Nominating a disc for the IRR Outstanding accolade is a serious business. It should not be done on a whim. So it is embarrassing to admit that by about 30 seconds into the first track of this recording my decision was as good as made." Andrew O’Connor, International Record Review, June 2010
