Concerto selection - Alla rustica

This collection of miscellaneous concertos, well recorded in 1985, has been grouped together under the name of just one of them - alla rustica.' This seems a somewhat arbitrary title for the collection which may well have been chosen because of the more 'rustic' nature of the solo instruments featured as a whole.

The concertos nevertheless make for an interesting collection, and also make for a refreshing alternative to the many string based solo concertos otherwise available. In this case Philip Pickett and Rachel Becket are the chosen solo recorder players, Colin Lawson and Carlos Riera perform on the two chalumeau(x) and Simon Standage and Micaela Comberti play violin. In addition, mandolins are played by James Tyler and Robin Jeffrey, Anthony Pleeth plays cello and Nigel North and Jakob Lindberg perform on the two theorbos.

The above list has been supplied simply because it vividly demonstrates the sheer variety of sounds to be experienced and enjoyed on this collection of concertos. it will also go towards appreciating that those sounds will be more associated with rustic activities rather than more formal events.

The six concertos themselves are 'alla rustica;' oboe and violin; 'con molti stromenti;' 2 violins; oboe; 2 mandolins.

Every one of these concertos offers music of real interest as well as a cornucopia of sounds not in regular usage today. They also vividly illustrate Vivaldi's enormous imaginative breadth and technical understanding.

There is not a weak moment here and I would suggest that this disc makes a very attractive purchase option.

Pure gold! 17 April 2010
By Hiram Gomez Pardo - Published on Amazon.com
I must confess I listened this outstanding CD yesterday night with some friends who -from time to time - accustome to share our little musical treasures. My surprise was majuscule at the moment Aldo (the owner of the album) decided to reproduce it.

All the tracks are first class achievements. But in major degree the concerto for violin and oboe as well the concerto for two mandolins.

Due the album was released on 1986, I'm aware it's hard to get it, but if you know someone in a little village or a great store, is about to see this memorable recording, don't think it twice and buy it.

A real acoustic gem, al the way through.
