Baroque revival

Europa Galante and Fabio Biondi are re-inventing (or re-discovering, or both) Baroque Music. Judge for yourself:

Their style is controversial, Biondi is sometimes dismissed as an over-doer (but isn't it in the spirit of the baroque ?), but there is a genuine experimental aspect to his work, backed by serious musicological researches; and the result, to me at least, is both enjoyable and interesting.
