This is another audiophile gem with the dream-team Romero/Marriner/Academy.
Why aren’t all music catalogs made of this quality? Anyway. The renditions are musically very satisfying and the works are pretty well-known. You can’t go wrong on these interpretations. Very tastefully treated though. Just one of those discs that I intend to listen to over and over again.

Farewell, Maestro Marriner. R.I.P. 🙁

Many thanks for this beauty to our friend Jean-Luc
If you want to taste the guitar-playing delights offered up by the Romero family or if you want a fine historical record of this remarkable musical dynasty, then this is the record for you! Jointly and severally, the Romeros do their stuff here: Celedonio (the pater familias), and his sons Ángel, Celín, and Pepe. To back them up the San Antonio Symphony, in one of its very earliest major-label recordings, does its damnedest under the baton of Victor Alessandro–with truly fine results.

HD-Vinyls 96/24 (Philips) Antonio Vivaldi – Concertos for 1, 2 and 4 Guitars (Los Romeros)

And again, the evidence that a digital production on vinyl better sounds than the same work on CD
Let’s face it: there have been literally hundreds of Vivaldi’s recordings made over the last 20 years (even longer if you include the many recordings made during the 60s and 70s that have since been digitally remastered), and while most of these recordings are just as good as the next, I found this particular recording to contain a certain depth and richness not usually associated with Baroque music. I use the word “depth” loosely as Baroque music is generally not meant to be “deep” or “expressive” in nature (after all, we’re not talking about Rachmaninov here!) 😉
