Brüggen plays wonderfully. He has total command of his instrument: vibrato, dynamics, flying through the vivace passages with no misplaced note. The accompaniment is also excellent
This is a monumental collection of Frans Bruggen performing a variety of pre-baroque, baroque and rococco works for recorder(s). Frans Bruggen put the recorder on the map as a solo instrument, and no one before or since has made such a huge impact. Many recorder players have burst onto the scene since, but I dare to say no one has matched Bruggen's musicality and expressiveness. Unfortunately, this 12-CD set appears to be out-of-print and hard-to-find as used copies as well.
