This is one of the most important release in the new ARTS "blue stripe" series, recorded with the technique 24bit / 96 kHz. The complete concertos op.8 "Il Cimento dell'Armonia e dell'Invenzione" are the most famous collection of Italian concertos, including "The Four Seasons". ARTS is proud to offer these Vivaldi's masterpieces in a new and exciting interpretation by one of the leading Italian ensemble performing on original instruments. A refreshing, brilliant and virtuoso performance which shows some of the best Italian soloists, such as the violinist Stefano Montanari, the oboist Paolo Grazzi and the harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone, who also conducts the worldwide renowned ensemble Accademia Bizantina. ARTS signed a long term agreement with this ensemble who recorded in the past years with BMG and Denon. The next recording will be devoted to unpublished and unrecorded Concertos by Alessandro Scarlatti. This new recording of The Four Seasons and of all other famous concertos of Op.8, is characterized by the utilisation of a large and varied continuo and by the energetic, fanciful and innovating interpretation which follows the new critical edition of Vivaldi's works. As a further bonus this is the first ever recording of these concertos with the new technique 24-bit / 96 kHz and the first ever recording 24/96 on ten tracks. This allows ARTS to make shortly available a DVD (47572-6 DVD), including 12 concertos in high resolution sound in a single disc which also contain video excerpts (90 photos of Venice during The Four Seasons): a big value at the usual ARTS price for a single DVD! The CD version offers the first six concertos of the collection on volume 1 (47564-2 or 47564-8 Hybrid SACD - "The Four Seasons", "La Tempesta di mare" and "Il Piacere") and the further six concertos, including also the two oboe concertos on volume 2 (47565-2 47565-8 HybridSACD). This is with no doubt the edition of The Four Seasons and of the Concertos op.8 for the new millennium!

- an edition of all Concertos op.8 that you cannot miss
- the first ever Four Seasons recorded 24bit / 96 kHz
- outstanding and refreshing performance on original instruments
- Accademia Bizantina is a worldwide renowned ensemble
- shortly available on a single DVD high resolution sound with video excerpts
- we expect a huge critical acclaim
