"Looking for an inexpensive but well done Vivaldi concerto collection? One that includes the Four Seasons? One that has concertos for seven instruments? One that has three beautiful choral pieces? One that includes likes of such greats as Pepe Romero, Academny of St.Martin inthe Fields, Heinz Holliger among others?
This is it then. Especially enjoy the mandolin concertos (two of them here) and the Two Cellos, as well as Holliger in Oboe work. Also, the Cum Sancto Spiritu is powerful and shows range of this tireless composer who influenced so many and still does. This is nice for someone looking to add a litte Vivaldi to their playing collection. Sheer enjoyment!"

"I am ever in search for music for canine freestyle and my choreographer suggested that I explore Vivaldi. My dog works great to Mozart so this was not a great departure musically. So I bought this album...It exceeded my expectations as the musicians play with emotion, with gusto, with great expression, and the choices are fabulous! And I also found two pieces that my dog really likes. You would be hard-pressed to find a better album. Great music performed masterfully."
