Notes & Reviews:

No major ensemble today is more closely associated with the music of Vivaldi than Europa Galante under its dynamic violinist director, Fabio Biondi. In this new release, Fabio Biondi and the Europa Galante expand their rich catalogue of Vivaldi's works with six concertos - five from La Stravaganza and another in F major - published as a set in London in 1728 by John Walsh and a pillar of the composer's international fame in his lifetime. The new CD also includes a further Vivaldi concerto, RV 544 in F major, entitled 'Il Proteo o sia Il mondo al rovescio' (Proteus, or the world upside-down), which refers to shape-shifting sea-god Proteus. The score is ingeniously written so that, with an appropriate shift in pitch, the solo violin and cello could readily swap parts.
