 Superb Performances June 30, 2016 By M. Bishop (Clackamas, OR) See All My Reviews "I Musici’s performance of Vivaldis L’Estro Armonico is an excellent example of musical artistry at its best. My take on these presentations is that I Musici is not engaged in period instrument performances here. What we have are modern instruments being played at their very best. I would say that the sound quality here is excellent, with the sound balance between the various moving parts carefully calibrated. In my music library I have the same pieces performed by Trevor Pinnock and The English Concert, and I prefer their performances over the performances produced here by I Musici. Nevertheless, I give I Musici’s performances here high marks as a worthy alternative to period instrument performances of Vivaldi’s L’Estro Armonico." Report Abuse
