Fortunately No, but the final track on the album I am about to post is called ‘The Bagpipes’! Will that do?

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!

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.
