HASH(0xa14fe2e8) out of 5 stars Second part of very known work April 1 2009
By Gabriel Betesh - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I found this CD highly pleasing for its brightness, as is usually the case with Vivaldi. The violin is impeccable and so is the rest of the orchestra. Some people might feel that it's repeatetive but the more I listen to this album the more I like it. I'm just surprised that I am the first person to review it.

HASH(0xa10560b4) out of 5 stars Idiosyncratic performances Dec 3 2012
By Stephen Doonan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I wish I loved this set (composed if this and another separate CD) of Vivaldi's 12-concerti group called Il Cimento dell'Armonia e dell'Inventione.

But I hate it. The performances seem so self-importantly stylized and idiosyncratic, and the sound, which is highly touted as being recorded in "24-bit, 96Khz" resolution, is very grating and annoying, with little bass and highly accentuated upper frequencies. I love this set of concertos but I greatly dislike this recording and performance of them, I'm sorry to say.
