In this recording Mr. Milstein leads an ensemble (Chamber Orchestra) of hand-picked musicians (6 violins, 4 violas, 2 cellos, bass and harpsichord) without a separate conductor.

Vivaldi's concertos are a Milstein rarity. Here Milstein both plays the solo part and directs a chamber ensemble..

Milstein disliked great conductors and opted for a small group of string players.. But keep in mind that some of Vivaldi's solo concertos he selected are difficult to find in *any* recording.

This performance of four of Vivaldi's 221 violin concerti (Fanna 1, No. 106, 2, 3, and 5) is for all fans of chamber music. With a small ensemble of 6 violins, 4 violas, 2 cellos, bass and harpsichord Milstein creates an intimate chamber music experience. You are seated perhaps 20 feet away from the musicians, close enough to hear all the inner detail that makes chamber music so exciting to listen to live. This recording from 1962, while not meeting today's rigorous standards for the performance of early music (original instruments, original playing techniques, etc.) is still music that should be heard.
