Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This well-balanced programme of Vivaldi concertos should have a wide appeal. . . . Nigel Woodhouse and Sue Mossop bring as much expression to the music as their instruments allow. . . . Smith plays a modern flute and possesses a pleasing warm, rounded tone. He gives a lyrical account of the lovely Siciliano of Il gardellino tastefully ornamenting the repeated halves of this binary movement. . . . The two violin concertos are drawn from Vivaldi's Op. 8, the set which contains the Four Seasons. . . . The soloist is Lyn Fletcher who brings detail and plenty of light and shade to Vivaldi's often virtuosic writing. . . . [A]n entertaining programme affectionately played and well constructed. Clear and effective recorded sound." -- Nicholas Read more Anderson, Gramophone Read less
