Let me start this review by writing about a CD that I've meant to order, "Vivaldi: The Great String Concertos". Originally I got it on an MCA Classics cassette tape (over 20 years ago) (It was also issued on the Contour Red Label). Even though the sound is light on the bass (like some chamber orchestra recordings), I thought the performance was very good. But the cassette doesn't play as well as it used to. So, I decided to order the CD version. When the CD I meant to order came... well, it does have concertos by Vivaldi. But they were the Opus 10 Flute Concertos by Rampal with Scimone conducting I Solisti Veneti. I didn't bother contacting the seller about this, but I did leave positive feedback. For a couple of dollars, I thought I would give it a couple of listens and then sell it on e-bay. By the way, it was still sealed and brand new! There is a vinyl version on Discogs (click here for the master release), but not the CD version. So I've submitted that.

On my second listen, I thought I would compare it to the James Galway and the New Irish Chamber Orchestra version on RCA Gold Seal. Both have very good performance and sound. The Galway version sounds more open space than the Rampal, but not necessarily better sounding. As for the performance, the Rampal version I prefer a little over Galway's. So, I might sell the Galway version (which I did).

What do YOU prefer? You may want to give both of them a listen and decide. You may find good used ones at cheap prices.

Now you may be wondering if I'm going to try to order "The Great String Concertos" again? I did, and the correct order came! Here's my review of it:

Oh, by the way, in the 1980's while at a flea market, I got this Columbia Masterworks 3-LP set of the complete flute concertos by Vivaldi, also done by Rampal, Scimone and I Solisti Veniti. It doesn't say when the recordings were made, but another source said that they were made in the 1960's. That's a very fine set.
