John Brunning enjoys the Biondi and Galante collaboration once again
Repertoire: Guitar Quintets; String Quartet
Artists: Europa Galante/Biondi
Label: Virgin Veritas 545 6072
As soon as I saw that Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante were responsible for this album, I expected something special, and I was not disappointed. They were responsible for a superb version of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and this performance is of the same calibre. The string quartet is an earlier work, sandwiched between two later guitar quintets. I shall have to buy Europa Galante’s companion CD of earlier Boccherini string quartets.
