Notes & Reviews:

This latest release in naïve classique's critically acclaimed Vivaldi Edition features Vivaldi's Opus 1, the first of his works ever to be published. These scores are probably the oldest Vivaldian works we know today. L'Estravagante is the fruit of the union of four musicians who wanted to share their common passion for chamber music performed in a Baroque style with original instruments. The violinists Stefano Montanari and Stefano Rossi, the cellist Francesco Galligoni and the harpsichordist and organist Maurizio Salerno consider the ensemble to be the best expression of a group effort, shared between artists who have become well-known over time, discovering that rare synergy necessary for the development of any creative project.

The Observer, 27th May 2012
You could not ask for better advocates than the sharp-edged L'Estravagante ensemble, whose wiry but flexible playing raises the current flourishing Italian baroque revival to new heights. Start with the tight-knit Sonata X, and save the dazzling variations of La Follia (placed first on the disc but last in the published set) till the end.

American Record Guide, September / October 2012
On the other hand, whereas Ms Crawford found Gatti and his colleagues making a sound of nearly orchestral fullness, it seems to me that Montanari - clearly the leading spirit of his ensemble - seeks a "chamber" leanness. He is among the most adventurous of our performers in pushing tempos to extremes of slow and fast, and he adds phrasing or agogic touches that can boarder on the eccentric. I would also bet that it was his idea not only to scramble the order of these sonatas but to put No. 12 as the very first, for a particularly sensational opening.

In all, I would recommend London Baroque or Glossa as the most satisfying choices. But there is no doubt that Naive offers excitement and sharp detail. And it alone has managed to fit the entire set on just one disc.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2012
Stefano Molinari, the founder of the ensemble, and his fellow violinist Stefano Rossi are perfectly matched partners in a style of expressive dialogue that takes the affective possibilities of the Baroque violin to its limits.

BBC Music Magazine, October 2012
Passion positively smoulders throughout these performances...This is some of the most fiery, spontaneous, unashamedly expressive and brilliantly excessive Vivaldi-playing on CD, with the power and elan of a Ferrari, the exuberant flair of Ferragamo and the playfulness and poignancy of Fellini. Bravissimi!
