EMI  Testament - SAX2518  - 180 Gram Virgin Vinyl

AAA 100% Analogue - Pure Analogue Audiophile Mastering

Pressed in Germany - Limited Edition

Testament has revived these classic titles from the EMI catalog using only the original EMI master tapes,cut onto lacquer at EMI's Abbey Road Studios and mastered using full analog techniques throughout production.

This performance of four of Vivaldi's 221 violin concerti (Fanna 1, No. 106, 2, 3, and 5) is for all fans of chamber music. With a small ensemble of 6 violins, 4 violas, 2 cellos, bass and harpsichord Milstein creates an intimate chamber music experience. You are seated perhaps 20 feet away from the musicians, close enough to hear all the inner detail that makes chamber music so exciting to listen to live. This recording from 1962, while not meeting today's rigorous standards for the performance of early music (original instruments, original playing techniques, etc.) is still music that should be heard. The sound quality is not quite as good as the reissue of SAX 2579 reviewed above. But it is still excellent sound. Again, a must have for chamber music enthusiasts - .PositiveFeedback
 
VIVALDI Four Concerti for violin & strings Recorded in STEREO
 
While Vivaldi was imitated and paraphrased for several decades in the 18th century, his style is actually quite inimitable. His admirers could add to but not originate the formula. This is why his singular voice speaks to us now with such genuine directness and individuality.

About historical performance practice has already been discussed endlessly, and there is no question that Vivaldi is interpreted differently today than anno 1962. But if you then a master like Milstein heard with this repertoire, the Verve of the outer movements as well as the Delicacy with which he designed the Andantes and Largos, the melancholic tone of the companion chamber orchestra, which unfortunately was not mentioned in detail (directed by Milstein himself), one wonders secretly whether the widespread acquisitions, Must be the final conclusion. Milstein's Vivaldi convinces with the first note, and discussions about werktreue are forbidden here as well as for his legendary Bach recordings: one can possibly play differently. But not better. - Even sound fabulous Testament Reissue this Violin classic!
