Giuliano Carmignola & Mario Brunello - Bach & Vivaldi: Sonar in ottava - MusicWeb International
Giuliano Carmignola is not known for hanging around; whether it’s due to his influence or not, the Bach and Vivaldi works are taken at quite a pace. He’s also known for the respect he showed for the music, with nothing scrambled, on his earlier recordings for DG Archiv; Michael Cookson typified his album of five Vivaldi concertos, all first recordings, as ‘beautifully performed and recorded’. I could easily say the same about this new release, especially as Arcana have accorded him a recording quality to match the DG. A very fine team of performers and recording engineers have co-operated to produce a very enjoyable album.
