HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Archiv) Antonio Vivaldi – L’Estro Armonico (Pinnock)

All thanks for this box go to Jean-Luc
Since 1987 there has been a revolution in Vivaldi playing led by some notably wonderful Italian groups and soloists. Generally they have taken a dramatic, free-wheeling approach to Vivaldi and at markedly up-tempo speeds. The dynamic and emotional range and observation of accenting has become far more acute as a result.
BUT …………..
There is still no real substitute for this relatively plain and level-headed account played and recorded supremely well. If that sounds dull then the first paragraph above should be reassuring. This set oozes sheer musicianship at every level. The solo violin playing by Simon Standage, as always with this player, is a model of restrained display and sensitivity held in perfect balance. In the concertos for several violins at the end of this set, he is joined by colleagues of the same calibre.
