Description: There's almost no chamber music by Stradella on CD these days, making these 40-year-old recordings on modern instruments with plenty of vibrato, uniformly slow tempi, tinkly harpsichord and artificial-sounding chamber organ both charmingly nostalgic and, well, the only game in town. 4 CDs. 21 individual artists including Angelo Ephrikian, Marco Ferraris (violin), Edward Tarr (trumpet), Enrico Miori (cello), Maria Isabella de Carli (organ, harpsichord). Original 1971 Arcophon LP releases.
