VIVALDI - Violin Music Minus One Book and CD
These two Vivaldi masterpieces are wonderful by any standard. The E-major concerto is from Vivaldis well-known opus LEstro Armonico and the C-major concerto from the great Il cimento dell armonia e dellinventione (The Contest between Harmony and Invention), the famous set of concerti from which the well-known The Four Seasons also came. ‘Il Piacere’ shares with ‘The Four Seasons’ a pastoral portrait of the Lombardy countryside. This is potent Baroque music. Magical!
Includes a high-quality printed music score and two compact discs with the complete work with soloist in split-channel stereo (soloist on right channel for easy isolation): then a second recording in full stereo of the accompaniments, minus the soloist.
