Vivaldi treasure

Vivaldi has been accused of overworking and repeating within his works. I, however, find his works to be beautiful and am not offput by his style. Vivaldi is one of my favorite composers and this set of works by Vivaldi, played by I Musici is exceptional. And it is massive, ten cds. The subtle, sensitive interpretation of Vivaldi is so extraordinary I am able to listen to these pieces over and over and never tire of them. Each time I listen, I am surprised by a nuance or pleasant variation I missed before and I experience each piece anew. I Musici knows Vivaldi. Unfortunately, the set is out of print but is worth extra cost to acquire it. I recommend it.
