Haydn: Violin Concertos
Label: Archiv Produktion
Carmignola's authority on the works of Haydn hits every mark at the center. The recording is lush and lively, and the Orchestre Des Champs-Elysées -- playing period instruments -- is brilliantly balanced with Carmignola's vivid, passionate and artistically phrased playing. Simply put, this is how these works are supposed to sound.
