5.0 out of 5 stars Viva Vivaldi 16 Oct 2012
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Vivaldi is generally one of the sunniest of composers, and a soft Mediterranean light certainly filters through these five works.
This lovely disc is worth its price alone for the first of the two lute concertos - here played by the great Narciso Yepes on guitar - which has a central five-minute Largo movement that is about as meditative as Vivaldi ever gets, and all the more impressive for that. Yepes and the Orchestre de Chambre play with all the gravitas at their disposal. The result is captivating. Indeed, the musicianship displayed on all the works here is pretty much flawless.
On the second of the concerti on the disc, we hear Monique Frasca-Colombier on Viola d`amore alongside Yepes. This work too has a beguiling Largo, this time a lighter, more languid one. The combination of guitar, viola and the chamber orchestra is disarmingly delightful. A lovely work.
Takashi and Silvia Ochi are the two players on the concerto for mandolin and concerto for two mandolins, both of which are utterly charming, the instrument happily suiting the composer and this musical form.
A final concerto for 2 flutes, 2 bassoons, 2 violins, 2 guitars, `cello, strings and harpsichord ends this recital - Vivaldi must have been feeling particularly expansive that day. It`s a marvellous piece.
I highly recommend these five concerti by the irrepressible Venetian, and this rather wonderful disc - despite (in my copy, anyway) a complete lack of any notes other than track listings and artists` names. Any chance to hear Yepes in his prime is worth seizing, and he plays like a dream.
Enchanting music.

1.0 out of 5 stars awful 7 Nov 2013
By Andrew C. Mitchell TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I am truly surprised by the other reviews. It is not the performers' fault. They are great. It is the recording. I had forgotten that it was originally recorded in 1972. It sounds both boomy and boxy. I can't work out what on earth the digital remastering has done. I don't expect recordings like this from Deutshe Gramophon. I can't give this away as a present at Christmas time. I would not want a charity shop to be saddled with it. I think it will turn into a raffle prize and I pity whoever wins it. There are next to no sleeve notes. I am not tempted to try the'Resonance' label again in case this is representative. I love back catalogue but not this.

5.0 out of 5 stars most enjoyable 16 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My New Year's resolution for 2013 was to learn to play the mandolin. Ambitious as, at the age of 53, I have no musical ability.

I bought this for inspiration. Very good, and the mandolin players are faster and more skilful than I will ever be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Pieces & Performers. 27 Mar 2013
Format:Audio CD
If you like the more popular Vivaldi works you will love this collection.
Nice recordings on a great label,by accomplished artists at a budget price.
Settle down in a quiet place,and appreciate the virtuosity of Yepes,Ochi,and Frasce-Colombier.
I particularly enjoyed the wonderful Mandolin pieces by Takashi Ochi.
I have had this CD for several years and play it frequently,as it is always fresh,and uplifting.
A bargain at this price.
