Romantically resonant, panavision performances, with the flute placed unrealistically forward. Slick technique means a lot to Galway. He likes his Vivaldi gift-wrapped. He positively revels in the elated virtuosity of this extraordinary music (just listen to his glossy high-speed tonguing), yet responds sentimentally to its poetry, with an indulgent vibrato expressively exceeding Baroque ornament. At under 48 minutes, poor value. Ates Orga
