I'm not certain whether I love or hate these new Vivaldi covers from Naive... but the music and performances are quite top notch.

I personally hate the covers. They serve no real purpose, but as you said, the performances are often top-notch.

The covers convey a sense of vitality, like the music.

Finally, I'm delving into some Portugese classical music with these recordings of one of the country's finest composers on the way:

The Josquin is a real must! I paid only € 5,09 for this double cd.

I already put in the order.

These just came today:











Slowly but surely I'm expanding my baroque collection... especially with regard to the French and Italian composers whom I have sorely ignored for far too long. I'm playing the Delalande right now... and it is an absolute magnificent disc... stunningly beautiful music played perfectly by William Christie, Les Arts Florissants, Véronique Gens, Sandrine Piau, etc...
