Project Description

“Biondi’s way with Vivaldi remains beyond criticism, and his work as a soloist here is as alluring as it is on his earlier collections of concertos and sonatas for the violin. Biondi eschews the frenetic approach taken by many period-performance practitioners. The music always is allowed to breathe, and there’s plenty of drama to be had, even though the musicians aren’t rushing Vivaldi off his feet. In an uncrowded field, this CD is a standout”

EDITOR’S NOTES
L’undicesimo disco inciso da Biondi per Virgin Classics dedicato al prete rosso, abbandona sentieri già battuti per esplorare una serie di lavori relativamente poco noti: Biondi segue l’esempio dello stesso Vivaldi esecutore e sostituisce il suo normale violino con una viola d’amore, strumento dalla voce più morbida e sensuale.
