Now the world’s leading recorder virtuoso, Steger delivered what must be the fastest ever account of Telemann’s Suite in A minor for treble recorder and strings. Ravishingly phrased, with heady swirls from Cummings‘ harpsichord, saucily swung notes inegales, piquant decorations, Steger’s prestissimo performance adumbrated interpretative sophistication and technical show-offery, bringing broad smiles to the faces of a packed Wigmore Hall audience in this and the Sammartini Concerto in F.
