Emmanuel Pahud is an amazing flute virtuoso, and he shows it in these sparkling Vivaldi Concertos. He whips up the waves in the Op. 10, No. 1, better known as "The Storm at Sea." Faster movements throughout these works are taken at a spanking pace, but with Pahud's breath control and ability to shape phrases at any tempo, he's not fazed at all. Those faster movements are done with energetic playing by all hands, the Australian Chamber Orchestra proving their mettle by matching the soloist and providing ample charms of their own, with sharp accents and vigorous yet shapely playing. Slow movements are even better, tapping Vivaldi’s vein of lyricism with restrained but meltingly beautiful playing. Listen to the Largo e cantabile movement of Op. 10, No. 5 or the Largo of the concerto called "La notte" and be enchanted. It's all performed on modern instruments, but even die-hard period instrument fans should find this disc a keeper. --Dan Davis

Distinguished Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra Principal Flutist Emmanuel Pahud offers some riveting, joyful performances as soloist in these Vivaldi flute concerti. He's well supported by splendid, virtuoso performances from violinist Richard Tognetti and his Australian Chamber Orchestra; this recording marks their EMI recording debut (Richard Tognetti and his small band may be best remembered to audiences worldwide as the musicians in the soundtrack recording of the film "Master and Commander" for which Tognetti composed some of the music. But they are perhaps best known for their elegantly stylish playing of Baroque music, winning ample praise from critics and fans worldwide.). The Vivaldi concerti represent several different periods from the composer's life; for example, the Opus 10 concerti were composed originally for other instruments - with the notable exception of the fourth concerto in G Major - and so these are really Vivaldi's transcriptions for flute backed by a small chamber ensemble comprised of harpsichord and strings. Not surprisingly, the sound recording is quite superb. This fine CD is one of the best new classical recordings of 2006 I have heard so far.

Pahud adopts a lively manner in his presentation, and to these ears the tempos can sometimes be too quick. I prefer a more relaxed approach. Maybe it's because I can listen to more of the music without tiring of the pace so quickly. A second matter is EMI's sound, which is on the slightly bright, light, hard side. It tends to add to the fatigue factor when attending to such spirited performances. But spirited, they are, and finely played.
