Martin Fröst's new album is a baroque adventure based on the question: What might Vivaldi have composed for the clarinet if it had been more fully developed? For this recording three clarinet concertos have been newly composed, made up of music drawn from Vivaldi's most beautiful opera and oratorio arias. Performed on the mellow, songlike chalumeau - the predecessor of the modern clarinet - and the brilliant, virtuosic clarinet of today, Martin Fröst and Concerto Köln create a wonderful symbiosis between the old and the new.
