(SACD-HYBRID) Recorded February 2001 at The Pumphouse Art Gallery, Niagara on the Lake, Ontario and at the Friedman Concert Hall, Kleinburg, Ontario this release features the important work of J.S. Bach, Antonio Vivaldi and Zoltan Kodaly. Nowhere is Bach's holistic understanding of a stringed instrument more evident than in his works for violoncello solo. Bach writes completely in harmony with the natural pitch, tone quality, and pace of the violoncello. Vivaldi was progressive musically. He established the concerto form as an instrumental standard, played with the idea that the soloist was at war with the larger orchestra and using the contrasts to dramatic effect, not only between players but in speed and volume levels as well. He also pushed the envelope on violin technique, something in which he probably remained untouched until Paganini. Recorded Live, Direct-To-Master using Tube Equipment. Extraordinary Dynamic and Lifelike Sound. Fidelis Records Audiophile Master Series.
