Yes.!!! Life and soul of the party is Chris
Fortunately No, but the final track on the album I am about to post is called ‘The Bagpipes’! Will that do?
That will do perfectly
Looking forward to the continued new albums I’ve never heard, along with the known classics from you (and all) that post to this thread.
Newish on Qobuz. HR. I nearly missed this since I skip over Vivaldi for the most part, but then I realised it was by Ms Kopatchinskaja, and would therefore be very, very different. That it most certainly was. Imagine Vivaldi played on a subtle blend of speed and ketamine. She is a superlative violinist and mixes things up most entertainingly. The track Lazzo Parlante is the ensemble and her vocalising a track to establish tempo. I was thinking that this would be promoted to a favourite but, alas, it contains some modern tracks and even heavy drugs and superb artistry cannot quite transform screech and plink into a silk purse. It is still an album well worth listening to. Note: not suitable for background music at dinner parties!
““Imagine …Vivaldi played on a subtle blend of speed and ketamine.””
Vivaldi on drugs. or preferably take drugs to listen to Vivaldi?! What about Nigel Kennedy.? What’s your take on his interpretation of The Four Seasons.? Need I ask…
Ms. Kopatchinskaja is always a bit delightfully nuts and a hoot in concert as she dances around and makes faces. She always performs barefoot in my experience.
