Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this gem
For a while in the mid-70s, this was the only available version of Vivaldi’s opus 3 concerti. This is one of the version (the very first was an obscure Italian release from the 70s I owned on cassette) from which I learned how wonderful this music was. And it IS wonderful…among Vivaldi’s best of his numbered opuses. It has tremendous atmosphere (recording acoustic helps) and luminosity. There is a lightness mostly throughout with beautiful solo contributions especially from Alan Loveday and Carmel Kaine (who also feature in Vivaldi’s La Stravaganza with ASMF-a ‘must-listen!’ that I will post next).
