Default L'Estro Armonico

This music is amazing, such energy & optimism flow from the notes.
Viva Vivaldi!

My recording is St Martin-in-the-Fields, 1972, which sounds like you're in the concert hall, but I wonder if anyone can recommend a German recording of this music? Recordings I have of other Baroque music made in Germany seem to have a richer, more full sound, the violins are closer... they seem to have recording techniques for large ensembles nailed.... (& the musicians who can get that sound too, of course)
Impedance varies with frequency, use impedance plots of your drivers and make crossover calculations using the actual impedance of the driver at the crossover frequency

I agree completely about the music!

I don't know of a German alternative to Marriner and the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields, but I would suggest Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante's version (on Virgin) for a very different (and more exciting) approach and sound.

You might well know this, but just in case: the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields also recorded Vivaldi's La Stravanganza, and it, too, is lovely. Its sound and approach is similar to that of the L'Estro Armonico recording. A later and, to my ears, very fine alternative comes from Rachel Podger and Arte dei Suonatori (on Channel Classics).

I've got a German recording I purchased 30+ years ago, but have to dig it out -- you can check out some of the Euro listings on EBay.
