Notes & Reviews:

A new album showcasing 'Archiv Production' at its best, with one of the label's true starts joining an outstanding baroque ensemble to create a new music based on authentic, original sources.

Despite the popularity of works such as The Four Seasons and La Stravaganza, many of Vivaldi's 250 concertos for violin remain largely unknown, also because many were inaccurately published.

The new recordings of the concertos RV 187 and 281 are based on Vivaldi's original manuscript scores and capture the thrilling spontaneity of this quicksilver compositional style.

The concerto RV283 includes a previously unpublished cadenza from the notebook of Vivaldi's protégé Anna Maria.

The recording took place in the summer in Bagnacavallo (Ravenna) where you could see the cracks in the walls of the church due to the earthquakes happening at that time. But the music and the spirit were so high - nothing could have disturbed the sessions.

Very much a man of the 21st Century, Giuliano Carmagnole combines his passion for the baroque with his love of motorcycling, which he calls, "Vivaldi con moto - motion and emotion from a Motorcyclist-musician.

Internationally known as a harpsichord player and conductor of baroque opera, Ottavio Dantone has directed his Accademia Bizantina on many acclaimed recordings, including three albums with start countertenor Andreas Scholl.

There will be 2 bonus tracks.

The Observer, 31st March 2013
The sound is indeed hard-driven and exciting, full of those pulsating unisons and relentless sequences with which Vivaldi powers his music. But there is also incredible delicacy and refinement here, and Carmignola's wiry sound is a world away from the tubby, rich Vivaldi performances of yore...Superb support from the Accademia Bizantina.

BBC Music Magazine, May 2013
Carmignola is certainly master of his [instrument], not simply technically but expressively too. His bow almost talks as it shapes a motif, turns an ornament, sings a line...ensemble is first-rate.

Gramophone Magazine, June 2013
Carmignola is a wonderfully accomplished player: with minimal use of vibrato, he phrases the melodic passages...in an irresistably expressive manner and performs the more challenging passagework with breathtaking precision and purity...The orchestral playing is certainly vivid...a firm recommendation.

MusicWeb International, 21st June 2013
Carmignola's violin playing is superb; the Accademia Bizantina makes for a snappy, sharp backing band which does a great job projecting the drama in this music. The sound is very forward, like a front-row seat in a great acoustic, and the forceful bass is noteworthy.
