  1. Satyr, you are spoiling me! This was the first Vivaldi record I ever heard, and I played my copy of the cassette till it broke!!! This has made me SO nostalgic! I could never hear it without imagining golden Venetian sunshine (even though I'd never been there). The performances are excellent too; I checked & they even re-issued it on CD a couple of years ago - so it's still in the catalogue, and it deserves to be.

    The Gramophone reviewer quoted the sleeve note "Vivaldi's music is the joy of living — it is Venice; it is St Mark's Square in the sunshine ... it is also music which knows how to say the most serious, even the gravest things with a smile". I can't check if that's the same sleeve-note as it was back then on my copy 30+ years ago; but it perfectly captures what I always felt about these performances!

  2. Hi David, I'm glad that you enjoy this record! Thanks for your reaction.

  3. Is there a link for this that I can't see?
