Gorgeous violin playing
on 4 February 2017
Some gorgeous violin playing on this Italian composer based CD. Lots of Vivaldi, including "Summer" from the "Four Seasons" - made famous by Curved Air in the early 1970s (and a few classical violinists have had a go too!)
But this CD is not just the "Greatest Hits" - but includes pieces by less recorded (but no less wonderful) composers such as Tartini and Veracini.
Nicola Benedetti has something of the gypsy in her playing, there is a sense of freedom and more than a little daring in her phrasing, and I think these masters from the Baroque would be delighted with her interpretations.
A really wonderful CD that has been constantly in our player at dinner time ever since it arrived...
