Vivaldi/Piazzolla

SACD Pentatone

shortage of modern recordings of Vivaldi’s , this one from Steinbacher is unusually refreshing. Why?s are so frequently recorded that new versions go to extremes – as if trying to shed fresh light in order to justify themselves. This one is quite ‘straight’; no annoying tricks or clever points being made. You just get the music, played with passion and conviction. Each Vivaldi is interspersed with one from Piazzolla, so you’re taken from one world to another. It works surprisingly well, despite the extreme mix of styles from different centuries. The playing of soloist and orchestra are beyond criticism, while Pentatone’s DSD recording sounds open and smooth; tonally it’s very natural, with nice mellow strings, yet it’s detailed and incisive too.
