Format: Audio CD
This is a highly distinctive album in the mountain of Vivaldi CDs. The works come from a manuscript in the library of the Paris Conservatory that is thought to have been originally presented to a French nobleman. It is thought that only two of the concertos were new, while the other 10 were chosen from those Vivaldi had on hand. Whatever the truth of this, this set of concertos represents a highly winning, perhaps more subtle aspect of Vivaldi's style than one usually comes in contact with. The works are scored for strings, although Standage doubles them with winds occasionally, as was period practice. The works represent an older style of the Italian Concerto, having something in common with Torelli. There is hardly any spotlighting of solo instruments--the argument is carried by the massed sections of strings. The performances hardly could be bettered. The Collegium Musicum 90 makes a tangy sound, not steely like so many period instrument groups. Tempos are never rushed, and everything sounds very natural. Chandos's sound engineering, as usual, is excellent. Unless you cling to the belief that Vivaldi wrote one concerto 400 times, you should find this album very appealing.

Format: Audio CD
I never thought the day would come when I would write a lukewarm review of anything by Simon Standage and Collegium Musicum 90, but I'm afraid this CD is a little dull. This is mainly, but not entirely, due to the music. The disc is a set of twelve "concerti a quattro" i.e. concerti for a standard string orchestra without a solo part. This can be a very successful form, but here I found the concerti rather samey, lacking in character and with a wallpaperish sort of feel. Many of Vivaldi's concerti are individual, distinctive and extremely enjoyable, but by the end of this CD I did begin to feel a little sympathy with Stravinsky's assertion that Vivaldi wrote the same concerto 400 times. It remains grossly unfair, but these concerti are not the ones which will contradict it.

In his notes, Standage says that, "Presenting them together in this way has the merit of bringing out their shared features and giving them an identity that transcends the individual work." I am afraid I cannot really agree - I found that their identity, such as it is, was lost in a long fog of baroque pleasantness which isn't nearly enough to maintain interest over a whole CD, and that their "shared features" just sounded repetitive.

I am a great admirer of Simon Standage and his ensemble who have made some really terrific discs, often making something really special out of music which isn't truly great. Here, I'm afraid, they don't manage it and I found the playing a little lacking in inspiration and variety and ended up wishing that someone like Fabio Biondi would turn up and do something to perk them up a bit.

I'm sorry to be critical, but this disc didn't do much for me. It is good that these concerti are available, but as a musical experience I can't really recommend it.

I have listened to the cd more now (i only listened to a few pieces at first) and found that it is actually quite well done and brings a really beautifull side to some of the pieces which require a more laid back tempo. Ignore my first review!

This recording lacks life, has slow, dragging tempos and certainly lacks the flare and exitement associated with Vivaldi's string concertos.
