Matteis, Nicola - Ayres for the Violin Vol I - The Arcadian Academy

This recording is some of the most uplifting, entertaining, and beautiful violin music that I own. The Arcadian Academy plays this music outstandingly. This disc includes four suites and two sonatas. The suite in d minor stands out as one of my favorites. This suite, for me, is on par with some of the greatest music ever written for violin. The members of Academy play very nicely together under the direction of Nicholas McGegan. I look forward to hearing other recordings from this group.--Amazon
