Vivaldi's L'estro armonico from Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque

Rachel Podger's new recording of Vivaldi's L'estro armonico with Brecon Baroque for Channel Classics is the Recording of the Month in the April 2015 issue. Gramophone's reviewer Lindsay Kemp wrote, 'these one-to-a-part performances by Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque have the heat to make your blood run faster. I don’t mean heat of the hard-driven, percussive kind so often encountered today; on the contrary, line is always respected, tempos are up with the pace but never over-pushed, and the instruments are allowed to speak with warmth and humanity.' 

Gramophone's Editor Martin Cullingford spoke to Podger at the recording sessions, and the exclusive video interview below gives a great insight into Vivaldi's work and Podger's musical approach.
