Frescobaldi: Il Primo Libro di Capricci [Vartolo]





I like this music a lot. I find it to be very engaging and both calming and soothing. I also like Vartolo‚Äôs playing. I find that he has a somewhat assertive touch but one which is tempered by grace and elegance. I also find the sound of the instrument used to be very appealing. A combination of the playing and the nature of the sound of the instrument allows all lines to be clearly defined, articulated and heard. It is also recorded in a complimentary and enhancing acoustic. There is good space and depth in the recording. It is a very fine and recommended presentation. 
It is better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and leave no doubt.
