Thanks for the new beautiful recording. As always with R. Podger, it is a great recording, but I have to admit I do not find here the pure miracle of the Stravaganza recording, which remains in my opinion the best recording of Vivaldi violin concertos I have ever heard.
Is it because the Holland Baroque Society is quite wise compared with the Arte dei Suonatori which is outstanding from begin to end in opus 4 ? Or because Huggett gave in her old recording of the eighties a incredible solo violin part (compare the exceptionnal first movement of the 12th concerto) ?

The sign of true artistry is that they make it seem effortless and that they are enjoying themselves. Wonderful set!

Thanks John for your enthusiastic note on the forum. I agree with you about hearing new details with every listen. Like La Stravaganza, these concerti command respect in that Vivaldi knows how to keep your attention with the small details and brilliant writing. Rachel was really having to work hard in preparation for this recording - she said they were all extremely difficult to execute. Bravo to Rachel and Vivaldi!

Compliments to Channel Classics and its artists on their excellent new recording of Vivaldi's "La Cetra".

For years I have owned an older recording of these concerti, performed by highly-respected forces. It was "essential Vivaldi" that belonged in my collection, but it never commanded my attention and remained on the shelf.

The new performance by Rachel Podger and the Holland Baroque Society is innovative and revealing; I find myself returning often to it, because each time I play the album I hear compelling new details.

Brava! Bravi!
