VIVALDI, Complete Concertos and Sinfonias for Strings and Basso Continuo
Review by Brian Wilson | Music Web International
The personnel of L’Archicembalo changed slightly between 2015 and 2018, but you would hardly know which recordings are which. The eight- or nine-strong group, who play on period instruments, offer performances of these works which would be hard to beat, unless you like Vivaldi to slap you in the face, which is fine elsewhere but just wouldn’t suit these less extrovert works.
