Many thanks to robbie52 for this rarity

Jean-Marie Leclair l’aîné, also known as Jean-Marie Leclair the Elder, (10 May 1697 – 22 October 1764) was a Baroque violinist and composer. He is considered to have founded the French violin school. His brothers Jean-Marie Leclair the younger (1703–77), Pierre Leclair (1709–84) and Jean-Benoît Leclair (1714–after 1759) were also musicians.
André Cardinal Destouches (sometimes called des Touches) (baptised 6 April 1672  – 7 February 1749) was a French composer best known for the opéra-ballet Les élémens.

HD-Vinyls 24/192 (EMI) Antonio Vivaldi – The 4 Seasons (Kennedy)

front-small-boxset Nigel Kennedy is as many know a wild musician, a force of nature. I saw him live early in the 90s and it was a very exciting experience for me, I knew him until then only under the etiquette of a punk, wild and eccentric musician. I learned to know a phantastic and lovely musician who deserves the full possible respect. His seriousity and smiling during the whole concert was astonishing.
This interpretation of the Four Seasons is quite “different” from the standard interpretation. Nigel Kennedy has added his personal touch giving the music a completely refreshed aspect. The dominating character of Kennedy’s violin gives out the appropriate tension in movements like the Presto from “L’estate” or the allegro from “L’inverno”. His interpretation is frantic, filling the listener with energy and vigor. And at movements like the adagio from “L’estate” the listener comes across a tender and delicate violin. This recording defiantly deserves a place at your music collection.
