Notes & Reviews:

Two of today's most charismatic and original violinists join forces for an all-new album of Vivaldi double concertos. This exciting repertory is given new life and energy by the two thrilling musicians. Giuliano Carmignola's last Vivaldi album of unrecorded violin concertos, released in 2006, went on to become a sparkling success. He continues to give revealing performances of Vivaldi that are both viscerally exciting and musically adventurous. As in previous releases, Carmignola is joined by Andrea Marcon and the Venice Baroque Orchestra - one of the finest Baroque ensembles performing today.

Two of today's most charismatic, attractive and original violinists join forces for an album of Double Concertos by Antonio Vivaldi. Viktoria Mullova, "the most elegant, refined and sweetly expressive violinist on the planet" (The Chicago Tribune), and Giuliano Carmignola, "a prince among baroque violinists" (Gramophone), team up with one of the greatest early music ensembles - the Venice Baroque Orchestra under Andrea Marcon. This highly commercial repertoire has been recorded before but never by a world-class pair such as Mullova and Carmignola. Thus the album is very likely to become a best-seller.

Gramophone Magazine
A perfect partnership in glorious works that show the poetic side of the Vivaldi

BBC Music Magazine
