They played at Salisury Festival about 4 years ago and were terrific, despite the addition of an unnecessary dancer. Most of the music , as I recall, came from the Tarantella and All'Improviso albums. For me, watching the array of unusual instruments was as fascinating as listening to the music. After the gig, I was fortunate enough to speak to Christina Pluhar who took some time to explain how the theorboe worked. She was extremely pleasant and interesting to talk to.
Although my principle love is jazz, I find that L'Arpeggiata tackle their music with the spirit of jazz musicians and the energy they bring to obscure music from the past makes their records compelling listening. Apart from the two aforementioned discs, I also have the recording of South american baroque music which is tremendous. This has just been released but without the DVD that was incorporated in the original package. Fascinating to hear them tackle Juan Tizol's classic "Caravan", for many years a staple of Duke Ellington's orchestra.
