By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 31 Mar. 2011
Format: Audio CD
This is a very welcome budget reissue of an excellent disc. The Purcell Quartet made a series of discs in the mid-80s by different composers, each featuring a piece based on "La Folia" - a popular tune used as a ground bass. This disc features Vivaldi's sonata based on La Folia and four others, and is an enjoyable and rewarding programme of some of Vivaldi's less-often performed works.

The performances themselves are terrific, as one would expect from the excellent Purcell Quartet. They are all virtuoso players who obviously hugely enjoy not only the music but playing it with each other and the result is exemplary chamber music playing with verve, delicacy and tenderness beautifully expressed in exactly the right places. The recorded sound is excellent and the notes very interesting, making this a very attractive disc all round, and I recommend it very warmly.

(All of the Purcell Quartet's "La Folia" discs are very good, but two more of my absolute favourites are those of Marais Marais: La Folia and other music for viola and violins and CPE Bach Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: La Folia , both now reissued on Helios and equally warmly recommended.)

La Folia has been for years one of my favourite Vivaldi works, but I've had no recording of it except for a very old cassette.

This performance is every bit as good as the cassette version, and the other works are excellent too - especially the Sonata in A major, RV 758.

The supplier supplied in record-quick time: excellent!
