Jennifer Bouton Schaub Jennifer Bouton Schaub Carthage faculty member Jennifer Bouton’s album of Vivaldi Piccolo Concertos will be released Friday, May 10 on PARMA/Navona Records.

This landmark recording is the first complete recording of Vivaldi’s piccolo concertos by an American piccoloist and the first in the Western Hemisphere. In recording the complete set of works for sopranino/flautino on the modern piccolo, Prof. Bouton aims to expand the standard canon of solo piccolo repertoire and encourage modern performers to investigate the possibilities of ornamentation that live in each of these sparkling compositions. Expressive, light hearted, technically elaborate, and strikingly beautiful, this collection of works is a stunning showcase of Vivaldi’s colorful concerti, concluding with an exhilarating performance of Paganini’s “Caprice No. 11 in C Major” to round out the program.

The album is available for streaming on all platforms May 10. Videos of each concerto will be released separately; the first, RV 443, is available now. Watch the video
