Notes and Editorial Reviews

...The composer is Vivaldi, the orchestra the ASMF directed by Neville Marriner... The soloists include...the violinists Norman Nelson, Anthony Howard, Trevor Connah...the cellist Kenneth Heath, and the trumpeters John Wilbraham and Philip Jones... [I]t is a remarkable tribute to the consistently exalted standard of playing that has always been the hallmark of the ASMF and its soloists.
