I only see this listing for players … so am I seeing and hearing wrong? (It CAN happen!) But in any case, this is a fun listen!

Here’s what the YouTube Video tells us:
LA BANDE DES HAUTBOIS DU ROY
A.CAMPRA': chaconne from Le Carneval de Venise
Mark Radcliffe & Simone Zangani oboes
Davide Bettin & Giuseppe Nalin, oboi da caccia
Paolo Tognon & Claudio Verh, bassoons
Alberto Macchini, drums

… time lapse while I look at the next video …

Ah-hah! This one lists the flute …

J. P. KRIEGER: marche from Lustige Feld-partita
La Bande des Hautbois du Roy (dir. Paolo Tognon)

Ruggero Vartolo, Aviad Gershoni, oboi
Giuseppe Nalin, oboe da caccia
Paolo Tognon ed Oscar Meana, fagotti
Gianpaolo Capuzzo e Gregorio Carraro, flauti dritti
Alberto Macchini, percussioni

  1. I LOVE PERIOD INSTRUMENTS!
    I’d love to hear baroque oboes & flutes playing Saint-Saëns!

  2. Hmmm. Now that would be an interesting sound, eh?

    I do dream of learning Baroque oboe at some point in my life. (Ack! Time is running out!)

  3. It’s a whole new cast of characters; the only crossovers are the director, Paolo Tognon and Alberto Macchini, percussion. And the flauti are soprano recorders in this clip, rather than the cross flute of the first.

    There must be a large pool of early music players to draw from. What a luxury!

    I agree with Robin; I love the sound of period instruments. Takes me back to my shawm and sackbut band days…
