Stimulating Aug. 7 2008
By David Saemann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
With this album, Simon Standage continues his survey of the 40 odd concertos for strings by Vivaldi. As with period practice, winds are added to a few of the works. The continuo consists of harpsichord and guitar, the latter a very appealing sounding period instrument. There is less unity of mood on this album than on Volume 1 of this series. Instead, one is prone to gasp at Vivaldi's prodigious invention. There is never any let up in the profusion of fresh ideas and interesting orchestration. The Collegium Musicum 90 plays with great spirit but never any coarseness. Standage's tempos never dawdle, but nothing ever seems rushed for virtosity's sake. Standage seems to have enormous respect for this music, even if it is one of the more obscure aspects of Vivaldi's genius. The sound engineering, as usual for Chandos, is excellent. If you are a collector, I would start by acquiring Volume 1 of this series first, then moving on to this superb CD.

Very good - and far better than Volume 1 Feb. 14 2013
By Sid Nuncius - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is a very good recording of a selection of Vivaldi's "concerti a quattro" - concertos for string orchestra without a solo instrument. I wasn't keen on Volume 1 of this series but tried this because it had very good reviews, which turned out to be justified.

Here we have a selection from the vast Vivaldi archive in Turin, selected, as Standage tells us, "on musical and pragmatic grounds with the aim of presenting an attractive cross-section." He has succeeded very well in this aim. The concerti are distinctive, varied and very enjoyable both individually and as a complete programme, and they bring out interesting and engaging performances from Collegium Musicum 90. Here they seem engaged and really bring a sense of meaning and individuality to the works which seemed curiously lacking in Volume 1. This is helped by the addition of wind instruments in some concerti which, Standing assures us, "is quite in keeping with the normal practice of the time," and which adds an excellent dose of colour and variety.

This disc is well up to Standage's and Collegium Muiscum 90's usual excellent standard. The recorded sound is very good, the notes interesting and the presentation very attractive. Very warmly recommended
