Description “Our familiarity with Vivaldi’s music makes it a particular challenge to any soloist not only to measure up to the virtuosity of past performers, but also to bring to the performance something new. In the case of Elizabeth Blumenstock and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra, that ‘something new’ is actually something very old and precious in its authenticity and faithfulness – a performance that would, without doubt, have pleased the Red Priest mightily.” –Barbara Quick

Blumenstock plays a 1660 Andrea Guarneri violin on loan from the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra Period Instrument Trust.
