Authority

I Musici has long time been a famous interpereter on Vivaldi’s music. And as this box set shows, they are definitly the authority. Vivaldi wrote hundereds of concertos, almost in some same style. But in between I Musici can distinguish the subtlety and delicacy of every piece. The result is a full and clear delination of Vivaldi’s concerto, with correct style and atmosphere. The acoustics is a bit over-echoed, but is well-balanced. (After all I finished listening this 10-cd box, it took me over a month.)
