After the volumes dedicated to Vivaldi's great instrumental cycles, La Stravaganza (2004), La Cetra (2012) and L’Estro armonico (2015), English violinist Rachel Podger continues her work with her Brecon Baroque ensemble to bring out this version of the Four Seasons, which is rounded off with three violin concertos. A passionate fan of the music of Vivaldi and Biber, Rachel Podger, who studied in Germany, demonstrates through her performances just how much the Red Priest's music (and her herself, following Biber) can cloak itself in the mysterious and bizarre, to the point that Vivaldi appears here as a distant descendant of the mannerists from the late Renaissance and early Baroque period. This is a particularly interesting and successful take.

Carly Simon had released an obscure folkie record in 1965 and recorded with her sister Lucy as the Simon Sisters, but 1971's „Carly Simon“ was her official debut. It was also one of the records that helped define the '70s singer-songwriter genre. Simon had by this time shed many of the overtly folkie aspects of her songwriting and singing style, but her songs remained rooted in simple acoustic piano or guitar-based, folk-influenced styles. The simple, low-key arrangements keep her husky voice and quietly emotive lyrics front and center.

Beatles fans refer to the 1968 album, officially titled The Beatles, as The White Album. But for Carly Simon fans 'the white album' is unmistakably, undeniably "Hotcakes". On the cover, a heavily pregnant Carly glows with happiness in a setting so gleamingly white that it immediately conveys sun-drenched domesticity. Once again, the photographer was Ed Caraeff, but this was not another session on the smart streets of fashionable London. There is nothing jet set here. Instead, Carly is pictured in the kitchen of the New York townhouse she shared with James Taylor, and in the months before the birth of their daughter, Sally.
