Alright, so… I love Bach, I love Vivaldi, I love all those red-haired and wig-worn priests of the old tradition, but I simply don’t get a chance much to play their music anymore, due to my unfortunate addiction to same tradition they themselves followed, that of creating music for their own time.
Andy Russo, himself a purveyor of said trade, has invited me to his college to hang with his students and is giving me an opportunity to dig into some Vivaldi for the next two days. details to follow, and a book report after it’s all done. Really looking forward to this one. Last year I recorded Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale at the same college, and had a blast! Add to that, the addition of Bill Ryan and his music to the program, and it’s a good time all around.
