Fantastic Interpretation
Antonio Vivaldo: "7 with one Stroke" (Tacet CD: Concertos by Antonio Vivaldi; Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra; Ariadne Daskalakis, Artistic Direction) ...The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra plays on modern instruments, yet historically informed, with the advantage that the singing quality is in the foreground, as opposed to noises often used for effect. That's an advantage of this recording, as is the the technical flexibility and brilliance of the musicians...

Ariadne Daskalakis, American of Greek heritage, assumed the Musical Direction for this CD. Her artistry earns her the name "Universal Specialist". Her repertoire is broad and yet she is always stylistically secure and absolutely at home with the material - for example in the wonderful A-minor double concerto with [Wolfgang] Kussmaul.

This Vivaldi succeeds with a cheerful lightness, based on the sheer strength of the music and without any caricature - thank goodness! "Seven with One Stroke" - these seven have indeed met their mark
