Another wonderful recording by Mike Valentine of Chasing the Dragon fame using period valve/tube microphones (Neumann U47 & M50)
This recording is of Vivaldi, Marin Marais and Sarasate and is performed by Interpreti Veneziani at St John Smith’s Square in London.
“After making the direct cut disc of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons we took the orchestra into Saint John Smiths Square for a live recording. This provided a great opportunity to record the orchestra’s vibrant performance as well as the reaction of the audience who really seemed to enjoy the whole affair. In capturing the event Mike created this 12″ 45rpm album and hope it transports you back to that wonderful evening.” (MV)
