Fantastic fusion of baroque Vivaldi’s music and trad irish one. Some of Vivaldi’s tunes alternate with irish jigs and reels. Whistles, Uillean pipes, fiddles and Vivaldi. I sincerely recommend!
Unfortunately I don’t know tunes used at this CD so please help me if you know anyone’s name and write it to me (https://thesession.org/members/56411#sendemail) and I’ll add it to tracks. I have submited this recording to get to know tunes’ names. I can’t find it in the net.

In track 2:
- Allegro, Concerto in D major, RV93 for lute, 2 violins & b.c.
In track 5:
- II Sonno: Largo, (La Notte) Concerto in G minor Op. 10, No 2, Konzert für Flöte RV433
In track 7:
- Four seasons, spring
One of the tunes
Just discovered this recording by Planxty:
I. The Queen Of The Rushes, II. Paddy Fays Jig.
Track no. 9 on O’STravaganza is an exact copy if Planxty’s recording of The Queen Of The Rushes.
The Queen Of The Rushes
Bunch of Rushes
In spite of the title, the tune in track no. 11 isn’t The Bunch of Rushes (hornpipe) but The Bunch Of Green Rushes (reel) !
