Notes & Reviews:

"..the six concertos assembled on this disc were remarkable for their difficulty; indeed, they were the most difficult concertos Vivaldi ever wrote. The B-flat major concerto that concludes the set at hand, for instance, may be the single most virtuosic work in the violin repertoire before Paganini...With bow blazing and fingers burning, Steck conquers the many challenges in these works dash and panache: their slashing staccato, ringing ricochets, brave leaps, daring double stopping, searing sixty-fourth note scales and almost impossibly high lying lines. Brilliantly accompanied by the excellent Italian period instrument orchestra Modo Antiquo led by Federico Maria Sardelli, Steck turns in literally breath-taking performances that deserve to be heard by anyone who loves great violin concertos and great violin playing. Naïve's 2006 digital sound is big and close..." -All Music Guide
