[Volume 1]

This is the second volume in these refreshing Vivaldi concerto reissues from the now defunct MusicMasters catalogue, another hugely enterprising diversion for the Nimbus group which is fast becoming the UK's première music label in a wide variety of genres.

Shlomo Mintz and the Israel Chamber Orchestra surely need no recommendation in this kind of genre and the early 1990's recordings come up as fresh as the literal fiddle which Mintz plays on. The balance between soloist and orchestra is well nigh unsurpassable and the music leaps around with zest and joy.

There really is nothing much further to add to these excellent recordings which are surely up in the top ranks of Vivaldi works. One obviously looks forward to further reissues in this excellent series.
