Gloria by Antonio Vivaldi( )

23 editions published between 1988 and 2008 in 7 languages and held by 1,317 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Twenty years after it was first released by Archiv in 1987, Trevor Pinnock and the English Consort's coupling of Vivaldi's Gloria and Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus still sounds new, vital, and even contemporary in this 2007 reissue. Pinnock's tempos are lively, his lines clean, his textures clear, and his rhythms crisp. The English Consort's playing is light, tight, suave, supple, and, when the piece calls for it, powerful. The Choir of the English Consort's singing is sensitive, strong, and excellently enunciated. Soprano Nancy Argenta is a standout among the singers, and the instrumental soloists, especially clarion trumpeter Crispian Steele-Perkins, are uniformly strong. Archiv's early digital sound was bright, deep, and detailed when it was first released, and because this is an un-remastered reissue of the same disc, it remains the same. If you want to hear a coupling of Vivaldi's Gloria and Scarlatti's Dixit Dominus, Pinnock's was then and remains now a fine first choice

Le quattro stagioni = (The four seasons) by Antonio Vivaldi( Recording )

Together with the star players of Brecon Baroque, Podger guides listeners through the cycle of nature and life. Vivaldi's Four Seasons have become one of classical music's best loved works. However, most recordings adopt a strikingly similar approach to these scores, and familiarity has blunted the music's edge. Podger's new recording aims to reset the clock, refocusing on the ingredients that make it so special and reminding listeners of the remarkable freshness of Vivaldi's invention
