Am only a step away from creating a cello gods thread Wink

One of my fav's is the middle movement of Winter, from the 4 Seasons. The trouble is, everyone plays it too fast. It's like wine. To be savored. They all butcher it.

I know I'm totally derailing this thread, but...

... you are right, it is indeed on the fast side. I have the same problem with one of my most favourite arias, Una Furtiva Lagrima from Love Elixir. Everyone of them sings it way too fast with the major exception of Carlo Bergonzi, whose version is the best.

This is one of my most favourte concertos (and one of my most favourite ensembles, even though I've heard other great interpretations); the first movement is possibly my favourite, but I love the whole of it.



And I just have to include a bit of cello (plus, I've already derailed the thread anywayWink)
