TAS Golden Ear Awards VIVALDI: La Stravaganza. CCS SA 190504 "This is evidently a great time for baroque violinists-artist who understand completely their repertoire and historically-informed performance but give up nothing, in terms of virtuosity, to their Tchaikovsky-and Brahms-playing colleagues. You've got Andrew Manze (Harmonia Mundi), Guiliamo Carmignola (Sony) and perhaps best of all, Rachel Podger. Podger's playing is technically fluid and characterized by a spontaneous quality and almost folk-like exuberance...there's also an unmistakable sensuality lurking just below those placid surfaces. The Polish Arte dei Suonatori baroque orchestra provides the most sympathetic support imaginable. The multichannel sound is exceptional, even by the exalted standards one associates with C. Jared Sacks-naturally dimensional and airy yet, as usual for Channel Classics, the rear channels are sonically invisible. The original instruments sound very attractive, tonally rich yet uncolored." - Andrew Quint, The Absolute Sound (December/January 2003/04)
