Excellent collection. So much music, so little time.

This collection is excellent. With five discs you get such a variety of music. I play this when I am stressed and the music plays for hours. I love the violin concertos. The crystal clear resonance soothes. In this collection you get so much, lute, oboe, violin, strings, mandolin, flute, viola, and bassoon. One disc is entirely violin concertos for 2-4 violins. Before discovering this collection I was a hard rock girl and I had never fallen for classical music but this collection has me hooked. The Baroque style is something new to me but I find it very much to my liking. I can’t seem to get enough Vivaldi! If you want the biggest collection, this is it. I thought about buying one CD but I’m glad I bought this five CD collection instead. I would have paid much more buying one CD at a time. This is a very fine quality recording. You can hear all the nuances.

Wonderful!

I absolutely love this collection of Concertos, this recording was performed by one of the finest chamber orchestras – The English Concert, conducted by Trevor Pinnock from the harpsichord and organ. This is a 5 CD set released in 1988 on the Archiv label. This group covers over three decades of Vivaldi’s career from the winter of 1708 until one month before his death in 1741. The format is ‘alla rustica’ – the musical instuments include violin, viola, violoncello, double bass, transverse flute, archlute, chamber organ, harpsichord, bassoon, theorbo, mandolin, chalumeau, recorder, and oboe and are from the period. This set will give you nearly a day of Vivaldi without interruption. When I have a long stretch of intensive study or writing this is a favorite…Baroque music invigorates the mind like nothing else, bringing out your creativity and mental endurance. Sometimes I will simply watch the sun set to it, enjoying a glass of merlot or hot tea depending on the agenda for the evening.
