Thank you very much Jean-Luc for this jewel
I doubt anyone reading this, regardless of how long or little a classical music listener or collector, would include Englishman Neville Marriner among his or her list of great conductors of any of the modern, romantic, classical or baroque eras. Yet, Marriner gracefully conducted music from all those times in recordings for Decca/London, many of which remain alive and in circulation today. I would make an argument that none of his recordings — and he has many great ones — are better than this recording of Antonio Vivaldi’s dozen violin concertos collectively known as Op, 4 and La Stravaganza.
