CD 2 is amazingly recorded, and for my money this is a reference recording. Not the only one, but one of them. I have more interpretations in my collection, so I have a reference in that respect. It's the total harmony and synthesis of this ensemble that makes the day. Such well informed playing, just putting into this interpretation what it needs, letting the music speak for itself. So do not expect flashy details, but be surprised by elegant playing, rigorous attention to detail, and excellent ensemble play. All of the musicians are on the top of their game. Ruhadze is without doubt one of the great Baroque violinists around these days. This kind of Biber has my votes full hundred procent.
