I’m still alive!!!!! I managed, however, to complete the rip before the problems and could now complete it (cleaning, pics, rars etc…) for publishing.
Thank you very much Jean-Luc for this jewel
As great as the Four Seasons is, the impression one gets sometimes that it is Vivaldi’s only masterpiece is terribly wrong. The concertos from La Cetra are every bit as fine, complex, tuneful, and captivating. These performances by the Academy are superb, with warm analogue sound. The violin solos are particularly beautiful. The best version of this set of Vivaldi concertos. Iona Brown surpasses almost everyone else when she plays baroque violin. Not on original instruments, but still the best.
“There is some wonderful music here; the later concertos are every bit the equal of anything in The Trial between Harmony and Invention (Il Cimento Dell’Armonia E Dell’Inventione), and they are played gloriously.” (The Penguin Guide)
