"Pick of the Month ... Collegium Musicum 90's stylish performances, distinguished by characterful phrasing and nimble rhythmic vivacity, add the final sheen to this captivating disc."
- BBC Music Magazine

"... Collegium Musicum 90 don't resort to fancy effects and tricks ... they pick lively tempi, they shape phrases beautifully, they use a wind trio in three of the pieces for variety ... and they lend just a hint of flair with little improvised ornaments here and there."
- Early Music Review

"A second volume of Vivaldi's delightfully brief string concertos brings more polished and lovely playing ... inspired direction of Simon Standage ... this is tunefully exuberant music, harmonious to a fault and ravishing in its sense of proportional momentum ... Standage conducts with panache and his players respond alertly and with a degree of carefree enjoyment that is quite infectious ... recorded in crystal clear sound ... a must for Vivaldian enthusiasts."
- Classical.Net

Simon Standage and his early music ensemble Collegium Musicum 90 present the second of three volumes in their celebrated series devoted to Vivaldi's string concertos.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
