pivot wrote:La Petite Bande with Sigiswald Kuijken directing from the violin. Mine is RCA SEON RL 30397. Definately not played as nappy time music.
Two very good recommendations, I have always found La Petite Bande version mentioned very enjoyable.
Another 'period instrument' version I've liked, is Trevor Pinnock with The English Concert, found on the Archiv label, original release 1982.
There are, I believe, more versions of this piece in the catalogues than any other, so you have plenty of choice. Each will have it's merits (or not!
) and personal choice and preference for different styles and recordings will affect your choice. Happy hunting.
Other pieces, try, Bach, The Brandenburg Concertos and The English Suites.
