"Vivaldi In Venice is one of the most gorgeous sounding and exquisitely played LPs I've heard in quite some time... an exceptional, and exceptionally natural, sounding recording, one so convincingly lifelike, so intimately present, so detailed and richly textured, that it's akin to being transported to the venue itself - or at least as far as a recording can deliver us... the sound is breathtakingly beautiful, with a naturally warm and singing string tone and marvelous detail and textures, all presented with a notable lack of artifice and relaxed ease. The venue is clearly intimate yet spacious, with pillows of air around the players and the listener placed in the front row of the audience... As you might guess, my conclusion is simple: Buy this record." - Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound, Music 5/5, Sonics 5/5

The goal of any great recording engineer is to add an extra dimension of reality by conveying the magic of the recording venue. This requires considerable skill, as exemplified by these Chasing The Dragon recordings, which somehow manage to capture the essence of reality and transport the listener to the recording venue. The result is a spectacular listening experience – one that’s much closer to a live performance – that can be enjoyed in the comfort of your own home. 9 it is not cheap, but if ever there was a reference classical recording to have, this is surely it. -Stereonet

Chasing The Dragon's first "Direct Cut" album was of the Interpreti Veneziani performing a wonderful version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. When chatting with Paolo, the orchestra's organizer, CTD discovered the group had never taken part in a 'live' recording. They have always performed in the San Vidal Church which is in the Accademia area of Venice. The acoustics in the church are outstanding. So after some discussion with the orchestra, they were convinced to record a live double album there. This would mean that a small crew would have to go to Venice and record 5 live concerts. It's a dirty job, but somebody had to do it! The jump factor of this album really has to be heard! 

For many years Francoise and I at Chasing the Dragon have had the pleasure of visiting Venice, where we would attend concerts given by the leading chamber orchestra; Interpreti Veneziani. These superb musicians, combined with the beautiful acoustics of San Vidal Church, create a wonderful concert event. Recently, we had the opportunity to record 5 live concerts, which we have combined together to present to you the pleasure of being amongst the audience yourself. We really hope you enjoy this album!" - Mike Valentine
