Great piece of music truly a classic. I also can't tell the difference between, players, conductors and similar sized orchestras. 
Goodness will shine through.

We certainly will be listening to music three hundred years from now and Vivaldi will be one of the pieces we will still be listening to along with the classics from our time. Just look at the all time highest ranked songs on Radio Paradise and you know what our great grandchildren will be listening to. Masterpieces like: Shine On You Crazy Diamond, A Day In The Life, Kashmir and Voodoo Chile.

"Love this piece, but this rendition feels a bit rushed to me.  He's tripping through the middle notes without much feeling sometimes, and and doesn't hold the pauses.  I know these scores are interpreted, so he may not be wrong.  Still feels rushed to me, though." -cavetroll about 6 years ago.....

Terrific comment!  

 
Perceptive comment.  I listened to Beethoven's 5th by the Berlin Orchestra so many times I could note the differences in any other version.

Thanks for this.  It seems off the beaten path-ISH for this station, but I love that it's really not.  :)

Nigel's interpretation of this whole Suite is the best in my opinion.
Edit: Duh, I made this comment previously...therefore, it must be true? {#Roflol}

I wonder which contemporary music will be listened to touched in 300 years ...

For that reason: Godlike, nothing less.
