“I enjoyed greatly some highly attractive and charming music, sensitive playing, and clean, fresh-sounding recordings … The Lute concerto in particular has good things … Of the Mandolin concertos, this double is most interesting, done with charm, with one mandolin each to the left and to the right, and is quite delightful. Much of the music is in Vivaldi’s best sombre G minor tone.”
Vox/Turnabout was best known for the multitude of baroque music issued in the 1960s and ’70s – recordings that sold strongly and became favorites of classical radio.
Among their all-time best-selling titles were baroque and early classical mandolin concertos by Vivaldi and other baroque and early classical composers, featuring some of the finest Austrian and German players of the era.
Alto Records is pleased to release the best of these ear-pleasing Vox/Turnabout recordings, drawn from across several LP releases, several available for the first time for streaming, and now available for download.
