Customer Reviews

Excellent job

Vivaldi playing at its best. Excellent use of continuo with a prominent lute component. Highly virtuosic solo sections.

Beautiful and spirited

Its a rainy Sunday afternoon .. I just bought this and am truly enjoying it! The pieces are short and melodic making it a good starting point for someone new to classical music .. the quality of the recording is excellent, great sound ... highly recommend!

Furiously brilliant performances

This is a Vivaldi that few in America have ever heard -- a far more complex, challenging and furious set of concerti and sinfonias than the much earlier (and much overplayed) Four Seasons. This recording will in time, one must hope, become a definitive part of the classical audiophile canon. Every aspect of this recording and of the performance itself candesces with brilliance short only of a live performance of these works by this orchestra. Incidentally, the author of this review had the privilege of attending one such performance at Disney Concert Hall on Feb. 18, 2007. What makes this recording a formidable feat? The near-perfect equilibrium and balance of the instruments, the attention to detail and precision (both in terms of sound engineering and the conducting), and the passion that so eloquently surges from both the fast and slow movements, which will surely engulf and bewitch the intent listener.

Biography

Genre: Classical

Andrea Marcon has been widely praised both as a conductor and keyboard player in repertory largely from the Baroque era. He is often identified with the music of J.S. Bach and Vivaldi: he has played and recorded numerous Bach organ and harpsichord works, and has conducted and recorded many concertos and other compositions by Vivaldi. Yet Marcon cannot be classified as a specialist since his repertory is quite broad, encompassing works by D. Scarlatti, Frescobaldi, Carissimi, Cherubini, and many others....
