ANTONIO VIVALDI
Vivaldi: Concerti [Incls The Four Seasons, L'estro armonico, La Stravaganza, & more]
Europa Galante, Fabio Biondi

[ Erato / Warner Classics / 9 CD Box Set ]

Release Date: Wednesday 1 March 2017

Vivaldi's concertos - so irresistibly inventive and colourful - have become central to the world's appreciation of Baroque music. In the composer's own time his brilliantly innovative works created something of an international sensation, even exciting the admiration of Johann Sebastian Bach. Doing full justice to the Venetian master's genius, Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante give performances of captivating virtuosity and immediacy.

"Biondi's playing is characterised by impressive variety, from the crisp articulation of the outer fast movements to the mellow-toned warmth of the slow ones...While there is plenty of swooping virtuosity on display, in the end it is the slow movements which impress with their consistently haunting quality. Europa Galante provide fine support with a full string sound" Gramophone
