Description: Reutter worked at the Austrian court almost his entire career. Collectors of unusual instruments will be delighted to know that he used the hammered dulcimer in all of the arias recorded here (and it partners with a lute too in one of them), adding a bright and unusual tone color to each of them. The trumpet concerto has the same first movement as his Trumpet Concerto No. 2 but the other two are entirely different. Italian-English texts. Olivia Vermeulen (mezzo), Nuovo Aspetto.
