No Such Thing As Too Much Vivaldi
Antonio Vivaldi – MUSIC FOR MANDOLINS – Acanta

Mandolin orchestras are an acquired taste and, to the casual listener, can often seem more like a novelty act than a serious endeavor, perhaps due to their association with the amateur (albeit enthusiastic) mandolin societies of the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
These notions of mandolin orchestras as being novel and/or quaintly amateurish are completely refuted in about the first 30 seconds of this CD, which is a welcome re-issue of a 1975 recording by the Deutsche Zupforchester (German ‘plucked’ orchestra).
The late Siegfried Behrend organized and conducted the band, which here plays his arrangements of Vivaldi concerti for mandolin, lute and oboe and features performances by the great mandolin virtuoso, Takashi Ochi.
The result is a chance to hear familiar (cynics might say overly familiar) music cast in a new setting, without the vibrato laden sound associated with modern orchestral performance practices.
While it might require a little getting used to at first, the Deutsche Zupforchester’s take on Vivaldi’s music will reward the open-minded listener with a unique, often beautiful and never less than interesting listening experience.
Thanks to the people at Acanta for making this recording available again.

Highly Recommended 91/2 out of 10 Oscar O. Veterano
