Format: Audio CD
I bought this CD about 20 years ago when I bought my first CD player. The crystal clarity of this CD is fantastic. The music is wonderful. Because this was originally recorded DDD, this has no analog errors that my ears can discern. I particularly like Albinoni's Sonata in C and Arioso. The entire CD was performed very well.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Distributor of this disc, INTERSOUND is a Roswell, GA. based outfit. Their "Quintessence" series from the early '90s features budget priced all-DDD transfers of well known classical music, what's often referred to as "everyman classics." (Note: this is NOT a PROARTE product.)

Best-known are an excerpt from Vivaldi's "Four Seasons," the allegro assai of Bach's "Brandenburg Concerto #2," his "Arioso" and "Jesu" and Praetorius's "Boureé." The St. Louis Brass and Camerata Romana are competent musicians who perform flawlessly here-- often with molto brio.

TOTAL PLAYING TIME: 39:46

COMPOSERS--

TOMASO ALBINONI (1671-1751)
Famous while alive for his operas, Albinoni is now remembered primarily for instrumental pieces.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH (1685-1750)
During his lifetime Bach was renowned for his organ-playing, not his numerous superb compositions.

JOHANN JOSEPH FUX (1660-1741)
This theorist's treatise on counterpoint remains an essential part of classical music curricula.

MICHAEL PRAETORIUS (1571-1621)
This author/composer/organist wrote music based on Protestant hymns.

SAMUEL SCHEIDT (1587-1654)
Northern German teacher, composer/organist of the early Baroque era.

ANTONIO VIVALDI (1678-1741)
Virtuoso violinist, the "Red Priest" composed much of his works for young girl students of a publicly-financed Venetian orphanage.
