Description: The A minor suite is not only long (31 min.) and not only formally unusual - an Air à l'Italien third movement is nothing less than a da capo aria, taking this suite well away from its Lullian model - but is also considered by recorder players on the same level of difficulty as Vivaldi's Four Seasons for violinists. L'Orfeo Baroque Orchestra; Carin van Heerden (recorder, oboe).
