Format: Audio CD
This CD is simply thrilling. I bought it not out of interest in Vivaldi, whom like so many others I had not the highest esteem for, but purely out of curiousity about what a viola da gamba would be like in a concerto setting. Plus, Savall is one of my favorite musicians alive today.

It turns out that this CD includes a breathtaking variety of color, from the opening Concerto for violin, viola da gamba, and orchestra, to the closing Concerto "for many instruments" which is virtually a Baroque "concerto for orchestra" and is truly dazzling. The CD also includes some classic favorites such as the concerto for 4 violins.

The CD simply drew me into the exciting, decadent, and passionate world of Baroque Venice and the familiar but out-of-place sound of the viola da gamba was almost like a friend who came along for the ride. It was wonderful hearing the instrument put though its paces in the concerto setting, and Savall and Le Concert des Nations produced many thrilling performances in this disc. There were opportunties here to compare and contrast its sound with that of the Baroque cello and violin... This, along with a friend's performance of a Vivaldi concerto on original instruments and a disc by The Red Priest, has really helped turn me into a Vivaldi lover.

But it wasn't merely the gamba solos that enthralled me. The wonderful quality of tone by the hautboy, recorder, and chaleumeau soloists was wonderful as well...overall, the orchestra and soloists had a perfect feel for the music that is rivaled only by a very few.

Take a ride down the famous canals in a Baroque gondola and be sure to park it at the Pieta when you do. This disc is yet another of Savall's successes.

This is one of the best sounding string CD's I have heard. I know that Vivaldi can sometimes be trite, but this music is sublime and, if your system is up to it, you will feel like those wonderful strings are right in the room with you. Buy it with the Boccherini (which is also wonderful music, even if the sound quality, while excellent, isn't quite as good as the Vivaldi) for a double treat.

Enjoy.

I have quite a bit of Vivaldi music. He was one of those musical geniuses, like Mozart, that understood what sound was supposed to do, make you feel happy and good. This is one of the best sounding classical CDs you are going to listen to. The recording quality is ultra great. Put on a better than good pair of headphones and you will be amazed. I didn't have this particular piece, and probably would have updated to this even if I had owned it before.

This isn't Mahler, which never made me feel wonderful while listening, just depressed. I never graduated to the more snobbish classical music. You don't need to turn the volume up and down to adjust to fluctuations in quiet passages either. Vivaldi is great as just background music or intense focus. Baroque music doesn't try to impress you or come across as superior. It just flat out entertains. I don't want hear from any of the Mahler fans, I'm trying remain upbeat.

Give it a try, you'll like it.

La Viola da Gamba in Concerto by Antonio Vivaldi is a great recording. Le Concert des Nations conducted by Jordi Savall is a wonderful group. As a former professional violinist I thought the musical renditions were extremely interesting and well performed. The CD also comes with interesting information & is well packaged. I would highly recommend this recording.

I kept hearing selections from this compilation on Pandora and finally decided to buy it. The playing is wonderful, the music sublime and the production is out of this world! It sounds like the orchestra is in the same room with you. I love it!
