+1 I think I prefer this version of Jean-Luc Brubeck to the original. 

 

You, sir, possess a most  discerning palate. No doubt you will also appreciate how far Larry "Wildman" Fischer's 1981 cover of the Beachboys' "In My Room" supersedes even the sublime original:

 

 

 


The desire to impose rationality, to make people or society more rational, mutates, as a rule, into spectacular outbursts of irrationality. It either triggers romantic irrationalism as a reaction, or it induces in its most ardent promoters the incoherent idea that rationality is something that may be imposed by force or by the rule of the enlightened few over the benighted masses.

Vivaldi: Concerto in D minor for Violin senza cantin, Strings and B.C., RV 243

Anton Steck, Modo Antiquo, Federico Maria Sardelli

 

 

Senza cantin = without top string, i.e. E string not allowed, use high position please. Also, the urtext score says at the beginning of the last movement Accordatura del Violino Principale per il Finale A-D-A-E, i.e. G string tuned up to A3. And presumably E string is still not allowed, so it's really just A-D-A. Skimming through the last movement in the score seems to indicate the G string on the solo violin has no use other than the open A O.o

ANTONIO VIVALDI (1678-1741) Concerto for violin, strings and basso continuo in B flat major RV368 1. Allegro 2. Largo 3. Allegro Performed by Modo Antiquo

Featuring Anton Steck, violin

conducted by Federico Maria Sardelli

 

"This is the most technically demanding concerto Vivaldi ever wrote for the violin, and is also one of the most difficult violin pieces in the whole of the 18th century repertoire. It really gives us an idea of the calibre of virtuoso "il prette rosso" was. This is also the first recording of this piece."
