Description

Even before their printing, most of the concerts of ''L’Estro Armonico'' were spread around the country in numerous transcriptions. The compilation of these works and their publishing had been the essential step in making this fascinating music most popular. Thanks to their vibrancy they perfectly present the creativity of Vivaldi which was and still is a benchmark to all composers.

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.

Reviews:

klassik.com (15.11.2007)


"Die Accademia Bizantina überzeugt hier mit einem ungeheuren rhythmischen Drive, kann darüber hinaus aber auch durch ihr präzises Zusammenspiel glänzen, das sich gerade in den Concerti für Violinen auch im solistischen Agieren abzeichnet. Besonders schöne Wirkungen werden dabei etwa im Concerto Nr. 7 F-Dur (RV 567) erreicht, dessen Wiedergabe nicht nur einen exzellenten Spannungsaufbau aufweist, sondern das auch durch die Verzierungsvarianten der Solisten überzeugt."
