Vivaldi “Four Seasons” and other Italian surprises


“animated…first class…”  — Philadelphia Inquirer

These gutsy Troubadours seem more like a contemporary music group than a Baroque string band, so don’t expect to hear anything stiff or artificial. Their sound is luxurious, their interpretations are expressive and warm and loaded with rhythmic surprises and unforgettable melodies.
