Amsterdam Guitar Trio - The Four Seasons (Antonio Vivaldi) (1984)
There are people capable of playing this?!"
is what I think whenever listening to this album. Two years ago, I
heard the last allegro of Winter from this album on a classical radio
station. I bought it immediately (after I caught my breath). It was and
still is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard - The Four
Seasons played pizzicato on guitars. The trio's execution is flawless.
The dynamic changes they somehow surprisingly master make this, I think,
far more moving than the traditionally instrumented version we've all
heard ten thousand times. I have had this disc for two years, and I
still catch my breath. I am grateful that such skilled artists had the
idea to present this work to us. Personnel:
John Dorrestein (guitar) Helenus De Rijke (guitar) Olga Franssen (guitar)
