Guys - still looking for another recorder performance - went onto iTunes and there are 3 options shown below for the Laurin recordings, each at 10 bucks USD - which is the 'newest & best' one according to your ears and/or reviews - thanks.  Dave :)



If you have to choose from those 6, I'd say the latest Laurin (the one on the most right). Horsch is fun, too, and she was 16 or 17 years old when she recorded that.

Piers Adams, Jiri Stivin, Maurice Steger are all fine choices for recorder

Interesting discussion, with many fine recommendations.  :)

I am very fond of Ensemble Amarillis; their concerto per flauto e per violincello recording is excellent:



Also available as a part of this four disc set:



Gordo recommended this excellent, low-cost set.  It's a winner!  ;)

I must say that it is great to see such a lively, interesting and educational discussion on Vivaldi  8)

It IS enjoyable, almost out of the ordinary these days. You are certainly most welcome to join in, recommendations are very welcome!

Well, Gordo is the King, I would have jumped on it too, and in fact, might still do.  :)

Of course, I don't want you guys to think you have ALL the unusual flute/recorder recordings. :D   I have these couple, which are quite interesting and unusual. ;)

Well, just did an iTunes DL of the 2-CD set below - now on my old iPod Touch (my bedtime music tonight), and will burn to CD-R when my new stack of printable discs arrives from Amazon - Dave :)

Nice. I haven't heard it, but I have heard good things about her. Let us know. :)

Regarding Michala Petri, this seems to be the most pertinent option



Her RCA recordings were budget boxed, but apparently are now OOP and not budgety at all

Just left the post below in the 'listening thread', so thought I'd also repost here - today received the Trio Sonatas, Op. 1 w/ L'Arte dell'Arco (2-CD set) and enjoyed - some interesting history noted below.  Dave :)

Quote
More Vivaldi - one new (Op. 1 on far left) and one owned (far right):

Trio Sonatas, Op. 1 w/ L'Arte dell'Arco (2 violins, 1 cello, harpsichord/chamber organ w/ Roberto Loreggian, & theorbo w/ Ivano Zanenghi) - no duplication in my collection; liner notes state "Wold premiere recording authorized and based on the Critical Edition by Fabrizio Ammetto...Vivaldi Institute in Venice"; BUT, when looking on Amazon there are already a number of Op. 1 recordings including the one in the middle below (which I do not own) w/ L'Arte dell'Arco (several different performers including Hogwood on keyboards) - must be an older performance; the one new to me was recorded in 2012 - these are 'early' works (RV# in 60s/70s) published in 1705 when Vivaldi was about 27 y/o - good review attached, however stating that 'The recording quality is unexceptional' - I disagree - performance and sound are quite good on my den speakers.

Concerti per Flautino e Archi w/ Sebastien Marq on a wide assortment of recorders + Ensemble Matheus/J-C Spinosi; works are RV312R,428,433,439,441,443 - excellent liner notes; review attached - Dave :)

Viva Vivaldi! fans:

Just received this in the mail from the momox ~



Inexpensive copies abound!  This one came highly recommended by Que; he is right on the mark with this.  ;)

An excellent release.

Damn, I thought I had that entire series on Divox, but somehow missed this one. Better now though... :D

No, I never got that box, but I have the other 2 disks in it already. Well, I will have this one shortly, the price was hard to beat! :)

Recorder fans may rejoice, because there is a new and better option:


I live in Taiwan, and already bought it at a much lower price than the Amazon listing, so expect the price to come down at least $10. It's a lovely box.

However, right now I'm listening to the recorder work from this disk from the box Guido recommended, and it is, indeed, stunning. [I had played the Handel disk first, and, for the first time, doubted Guido's judgment. (Admittedly, I am not a Handel fan) However, after listening to this disk, I know I was completely in the wrong.]  Wonderful on every level!
It's all good...

I like this a lot. I’m comparing it to Podger today. Podger gets a lot of deserved acclaim but I like the daring quality of Seiler. It’s mercurial, audacious, etc. I’m trying to come up with a way to characterize Podger in comparison.

What do you think of the Rebel?  I like Seiler too. I don't think I have any recording of that Rebel, so I am thinking about the music more than the performance (which I am sure I will like, coming from those people!).

I left it off my playlist. Thanks for reminding me so I will listen to it. Yeah, these performers are exciting.

I have this Rebel, which I quite like:



He sounds more Italian than French, but I don't know enough about his background to say why. Maybe he trained in Italy?  Anyway, I hope you tell me you like The Elements, I can see me jumping on that. Plus, I NEED another 4 Seasons!  ::)
