Even though I probably don’t need anymore Vivaldi CDs, I couldn’t pass up getting this title in the Amazon Marketplace for a penny plus shipping. This first generation disc from DG’s ” Musikfest” series presents conductor Herbert Von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmoniker performing seven of Vivaldi’s Concerti (RVs 129, 151, 169, 234, 271, 439 & 523), originally released in 1971. Karajan wasn’t necessarily celebrated for his Vivaldi, but how can you pass on the world’s best sounding orchestra at the height of its powers, performing musical ear candy – you simply cannot. Period instrument purists may not agree with that assessment, but they’ll have to speak up, the volume’s on 10 for this one!
