It represents a broadside, of sorts, in the war of taste between period-instrument musicians and die-hard members of the old guard, whose number certainly includes Zukerman. Around the time it was taped, he made some provocative and disdainful statements in the Canadian press about the performance of early music on period instruments, and here he shows that he does, indeed, prefer to do things the old-fashioned way, i.e., without much regard for the stylistic niceties of Baroque art. Favoring moderate tempos, smooth articulations, and generous vibrato, he delivers a sunny, fluent, and very conventional reading of the solo part, played with considerable polish (most of the time) but without much fire or imagination. The Canadian ensemble, featuring a large number of strings in an ample acoustic, holds up its end handsomely, but its lardy sound seems quite anachronistic by today's standards. The choice of Haydn's Symphony No. 49 in F minor (La Passione) as filler is an odd one, except that its wintry beginning dovetails nicely with (and is in the same key as) Vivaldi's Winter concerto. --Ted Libbey
