Vivaldi's flute concertos form a still badly defined and little known corpus. Between incomplete concertos, transcriptions or revisions, trios or quartets equally called "concertos", apocryphal pages, recently rediscovered works, those still missing (what may the future bring?) but known through catalogues, the ambiguity in the use of the recorder or the flute (maintained by present day exponents), it is rather difficult to have a precise idea of the number of concertos the Venetian devoted to the flauto traversier. Six of them, however, had the good fortune to be published, and have reached great fame, whether in concerts or on disc.
Equally director and flutist, Alexis Kossenko distinguishes himself once again, after his success with CPE Bach's flute concertos (Alpha 093 & 146).
