Is it still possible after hundreds, perhaps thousands, of live performances and recordings, to add something new to Vivaldi's Four Seasons? Yes it is, and it shows on this beautiful recording of Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca, an extraordinary group devoted almost entirely to Violin Concertos by Vivaldi, and Giuliano Carmignola on violin. Audiophile 45rpm cut by legendary Stan Ricker.

First 45rpm LP Ever Of This Album, Half-Speed Mastered From Original Master Tapes by Stan Ricker! Considered one of the 10 best recordings of the last century.


Reviewer Norbert Hornig from Fono Forum calls this album unsurpassed. "...it seems to me so far. Giuliano Carmignola's first recording with the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca of 1992. A stroke of genius: Grippingly alive instrumental extremely brilliant, musically transparent and colored to the last corner of the score."


"Here you have natural, reflective acoustics. Close your eyes and it is church-like, though utmost clarity and inner detail is well-maintained. (...) This particular version issued by the Italian label (and who better?) AudioNautes, was recorded back in 1992 in the picturesque Col San Martino, Church of San Vigilio performed by Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca a group formed in 1982 in the Northern Italian city of Treviso, part of which is within the Venetian walls. The ensemble performs on authentic period instruments. The violin soloist Giuliano Carmignola plays a Pietro Guarnari violin. (...) Anyway, Stan cut the lacquers at 45rpm on his Neumann VMS-66 lathe and SX-74 cutter head using custom Keith O. Johnson electronics and was damn happy with the results." - Michael Fremer, Analog Planet
