Audio / video production - Leonardo Bortolotto

This beautiful cantata by Telemann uses the combination of traverso, fagottino, alto voice and continuo. If played on a full size baroque bassoon the part would have to be played an octave lower as in its written pitch in alto clef the part would be too high. Played on Fagottino the part lies perfectly and does not go lower than the bass line.
