Re: Favorite Recordings of Classical Mandolin
Vivaldi's Concerto for 2 Mandolins is a great piece. The interplay between mandolin and orchestra is a wonderful thing to hear.
But be careful, the quality of player and instrument used on most of the versions I have doesn't live up to the excellence of the music itself. As my son said recently 'the music sounds good, but the player and mandolin tone are terrible'. So, choose your version carefully.
I haven't heard the "Barrington Pheloung and Nigel North " version before. I'll check it out. It's got to be better than the substandard mess I have in my collection.
