Description

Compared to his other compilations that were printed during his career, Vivaldi himself devoted his most advertency to the printing of his L'Estro Armonico. In doing so, he never could have known which great successes from the publishing point of view these works would ever achieve. And he never could have guessed that they would have reached an exemplary status as soon as they were released.

ARTS MUSIC now presents Vivaldi's complete famous cycle of ''L’Estro Armonico'' on Hybrid SACD in exciting multichannel sound. One of the most reasoned Italian baroque ensembles, the Accademia Bizantina, interprets this beautiful compilation under the leadership of Ottavio Dantone. The ensemble plays on authentic instruments and manages to create a pure and dazzling historical sound. Simply dive into a baroque sound happening full of verve and elegance.

klassik.com (15.11.2007)


"eine sehr lebendige Aufnahme, die aufgrund der SACD-Qualität viel Klangtiefe und große dynamische Spielräume besitzt.......Die außerordentliche Lebendigkeit rührt daher, dass die Interpreten das rhetorische Moment der Concerti nach außen kehren, woraus ein sehr nuanciertes Musizieren resultiert, das nie zur klanglichen Einförmigkeit verkommt und die Spannung durchweg aufrecht zu erhalten weiß. Die jeweils allein, zu zweit oder zu viert aus dem Ensemble hervortretenden Soli überzeugen durch eine sehr plastische Darstellung, wie sei etwa beim Concerto Nr. 2 g-Moll (RV 578) aufgrund der starken dynamischen Kontrasten besonders gut zur Geltung kommt.

Hier gehts zur Besprechung: http://magazin.klassik.com/reviews/reviews.cfm?TASK=REVIEW&RECID=10927&REID=7003&CFID=6103099&CFTOKEN=4eb08b48b439660c-9BF359B3-B2E8-F19A-3A69412C787C3E26

"High octane ear food: music and performances that you will want to listen to more than once - in spades"

GOLDBERG MAGAZINE (17.08.2007)


for 47646-2 (CD-release): "Dantone comes across as a master of dramaturgy. Accademia Bizanzina's interpretation has irreprochable rhythmic drive and a refined sense of ornamentation. Each movement is like a scene from an opera"
