The „Accademia Bizantina“ and its leader Ottavio Dantone present the complete recording of Vivaldi’s most famous cycle of concerts “L’ Estro Armonico”. Vivaldi himself regarded the 12 concertos as his most important cycle and also the great J. S. Bach was inspired to transcribe some of the concertos for organ.

The Accademia Bizantina has become the leading Italian baroque ensemble. Their recordings for ARTS so far have been acclaimed throughout the international press. Never before in our days, baroque music was played so full of verve. This is an audiophile 24 bit/96 kHz recording of these most charming works, performed on period instruments.
