    Thank's to Presto's current sale I've completed my Vivaldi Naive collection:



    Also picked this up for good measure, on the basis that you can never have too much Romina Basso:

    That makes two of us up to date with the Vivaldi Na´ve series. I also orderd the L'Olimpiade and the Ristori with additions by Vivaldi Orlando Furioso (1714) that we discussed before. And to crown it all off, Alan Curtis' version of Giulio Cesare in Egitto, plus other bits and pieces that I shall post later.

    Actually I didn't get my Farnace from them, as I went for the Max Emanuel Cencic version instead.

    These just look so nice all lined up together. Make us owners of these item feel immensely proud of our music collection. (I have been compared with children collecting football/soccer cards). I also bought the DVD of the genuine Orlando Furioso, plus the Ristori with additions by Vivaldi Orlando Furioso (1714, picture below of lady wearing a hat). I already have the CD of the genuine Orlando Furioso (pictured second row, second from the right in DA's photo).

    Vivaldi, Orlando Furioso DVD with the same cast as already released on CD (which I also have)

    Marie-Nicole Lemieux does very good crazy in this. But it's Jaroussky who steals the show.
