Performers: London Vivaldi Orchestra Monica Huggett (director & violin soloist) Roy Goodman (leader). Vivaldi's violin concertos, of which some 500 appear to be extant, were first written to showcase the composer's virtuosity on the violin, and so it is no wonder that this small selection of four concertos puts Monica Huggett in the limelight, her sweet violin tone generally dominating proceedings, although not altogether to the exclusion of the London Vivaldi Orchestra and its. leader Roy Goodman.
Antonio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741): Violin Concerto in E minor, RV 277, "Il Favorito" (Op. 11,2); Violin Concerto in E flat major, RV 253, "La Tempesta del Mare" (Op. 8,5); Violin Concerto in A major, RV 353 (MS. from Turin Library); Violin Concerto in E major, RV 271, "L'Amoroso". Monica Huggett, baroque violin and director; London Vivaldi Orchestra, Roy Goodman, leader. Recorded in the Church of St. Barnabas, North Finchley, England, in 1984. But the other three concertos also have their own distinctive characters and certainly could not be confused with anything from the "Four Seasons". L'Amoroso, in particular, lives up to its title perfectly, with some "lovely" violin playing to match the mood. In fact, the only drop of wormwood here is the brevity of the recording, some 43 minutes - at full price, that is decidedly stingy.
Virgin Classics' four-CD set Vivaldi: The Four Seasons features violinist Monica Huggett along with a number of star soloists, including Elizabeth Wallfisch and the Raglan Baroque Players under Nicholas Kraemer in recordings made in 1987 and 1990. To start with, this little box is an incredible value, as it includes not only the Four Seasons, but also the rest of Vivaldi's Op.
