I had this friend at the old amazon forums who could not listen to the 70s recrdings of baroque music because they played "nursing home allegros."

I only like the Marriner recordings of the old ones. I really can't stand Rampal playing flute concertos.

Amazon translated review of a 4 CD box. I have the box. Review mentions names I recognize, The grammar is in there somewhere:
3.0 out of 5 stars planplan disappointment
Reviewed in France on November 29, 2013
Format: Audio CDVerified Purchase
I have always kept a tenderness for Ephrikian (Gesualdo!). But now it's not okay. For the chenuses that have never managed to evolve from the Musici, or from Claudio Scimone, to the current most fizzling baroque primesauteries. It's heavy, it's dated, until the sound is taken (this reverb...). So, for those who still want to stay a little between two worlds, go instead to Guglielmo and Arte dell'Arco. It reminds me of this good old Antoine Goléa, once at the Disc Critics Gallery, strangling with indignation at the first Bach cantatas of Harnoncourt: “But ze m'excouze, my dear colleagues, a Bach cantata, it's not a bal-mouzette !

“Harnoncourt who has just left us, almost in the total indifference of our abyssally deculturated media. But who is astonished now...

This is the first time I've heard a detailed exposition about how the high C found its way into Allegri's Miserere. Elam Rotem has a knack of presenting technical concepts in such a way that even musically untutored people like me can understand what is going on.

I am not so enamoured by his blithe dismissal of the anecdote concerning young Mozart's capture of the score. Sufficient contemporary documentation exists* to remove any doubt that it actually happened.

Thanks again for digging out yet another interesting link, and yes, the rendition by The Sixteen, the inclusion of the high C and the use of women as sopranos notwithstanding, is utterly beautiful.

I could have gone for a more authentic early music ensemble but I the just love the combined sound of The Sixteen, even though I reckon the soprano could have reigned in the vibrato a bit.

"Authenticity", "period instruments" and so forth are not high on my priority list, but the vibrato did jar.

Janine Jensen does a rather fresh take on 4 Seasons. She does not play a period instrument, but this is in many ways right, tempos and all. I think Vivaldi would approve:
