L'Arte Dell 'Arco.

All is well played and better recorded with the new engineer. But it is still old fashioned playing with matching inert movements. The context is rather romantically inclined, and the authentic baroque elements are sadly missing, at least for me. Phrasing seems to be a tad better, but the bowing is not always as correct as it should be. Legato is applied as much as the instruments allow. Many a time the tone is wobbly to say the least. Overall the playing is a bit tighter.
