    Delightful Vivaldi w/ Marvelous Lute

    Ronn McFarlane is something of a new discovery for me - and I must admit to being somewhat chagrined to have not been familiar with him prior to this recording as his playing is exceptional. His tone is pure, he possesses nimble fingers, and has the interpretive skills to match his technical skills. And the Bach Sinfonia, under the baton of Daniel Abraham, also does a tremendous job. This recording is filled with wonderful pieces, lovingly and energetically played, full of feelings and moods and all of the positives that the best performed Baroque music can bring. This is good stuff!

    Particularly noteworthy are the Concerto in D Major (if you don't know it by name, you'll definitely know it when you hear it - and you've probably not heard it as well performed as it is here), the Trio in G minor with its deep resonant harmonies (the Andante Molto is soooo good), the "In Turbato mare irato" featuring soprano Jennifer Ellis Kampani who was obviously having a lot of fun with this piece, the Concerto in D minor for lute and Viola d'amore (the Viola d'amore is *sweet*), and the Sinfonia in G minor is just a feast for the Baroque music lover. You just can't help but respond to the energy present in this recording.

    Mr. McFarlane's lute and Vivaldi's music are a combination not to be missed. Get this disc!
