La Notte - Vivaldi: Concerti / Musica Pacifica, Et Al
No Baroque composer is more beloved than Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), and no contemporary ensemble brings to his music more joy than Musica Pacifica. Elizabeth Blumenstock, violin, and Judy Linsenberg, recorder, lead a stellar ensemble on oboe, cello, lute, and harpsichord, in performances of great elegance and flair. Full of elation and engaging vitality, this CD is a delight from start to finish. Priest, teacher, and composer, Vivaldi produced an enormous amount of music, including more than 500 sonatas. This program consists of sonatas and 'chamber' concertos, including one of his most famous works, 'La Notte' (The Night) RV 104.
