Great fun to listen to the almost preternatural virtuosity of recorder soloist Maurice Steger on these Vivaldi concerti. How does he do it?! It's not just a speed test, as the virtuosity serves rather than obscures the music, and he can play long notes, too. That said, the quick tempi on some of these might raise an eyebrow.

Fasolis has a tendency of ultra high speed also for some of this other albums.

Matthew Halsall day.. The second album is probably my favorite one of this musician, highly recommended if someone doesn't know it (16-44, 24-96).

Hi, my name is Jason and I am addicted to Diana Krall...

 

Hi Jason, is this your only addiction or maybe you have a thing for some other long-legged blondes or brunettes.? ;)

I don't know why I haven't purchased this great recording yet, but thankfully that is an oversight I can fix immediately.

Thanks so much for this. This album flew completely under my radar when it was released, primarily because it wasn’t made available on ProStudioMasters and HDtracks, my main go-to sites for new hi-res releases. It’s still not available on those sites, but I downloaded it via Qobuz (for a very good price). Just played the first two sonatas, and they were superb!
