Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There certainly is no shortage of Vivaldi Guitar Concerto recordings, but this one by Eduardo Fernandez ranks high on the list. It was recorded in London's Henry Wood Hall, and has excellent detail plus a fine ambience. The Giuliani Concerto is recorded in a version originally for guitar and string quartet. Sometimes the full string section plays, at other times just the first chairs. It receives a very elegant performance. Vivaldi's RV 93 may be the most controversial performance here. The slow movement features lots of ornamentation, which I feel is very skillfully done and adds to the impact of the piece. The viola d'amore player in the next concerto is excellent, and he and Fernandez play off of each other very elegantly. As for the Paganini Sonata, it was recorded some years later in the same venue and features elegant, stylish playing. This is one of the better baroque guitar and orchestra recordings to come my way in recent years. Special mention must be made of George Malcolm's excellent leadership in the Vivaldi Concertos, accompanying with understanding and relish, without ever overpowering his soloist.
