Notes & Reviews:

A large number of the concertos were composed specifically for the orphaned students ofthe school, and Vivaldi would strive to find performance opportunities and produce concerts in a Venice, which was very much preoccupied with the theatre. This set contains some of his most famous concertos, played in style and with that original Venetian touch by the Interpreti Veneziani. The illustrious chamber orchestra Interpreti Veneziani was founded by Paolo Cognolato in 1987, and has since been a key player in the Venetian musical calendar as well as having a busy touring schedule both in Italy and abroad.

American Record Guide, January/February 2015
The first release is one of Newton's bargains, containing 23 of Vivaldi's concertos on the four discs. The first two discs in the set were recorded in 1996; the third was recorded in 2010, and it, together with the first two, is done by Interpreti Veneziani, a chamber group founded in 1987. The program on the first disc is a selection of concertos with titles, including L'Amoroso, Il Favorito, and La Tempesta di Mare. A different soloist plays each concerto. Four of the five concertos on the second disc are from Opus 3 - some of Vivaldi's most popular. Among the selections on the third disc is one of the more fascinating renditions of the R 531 concerto for two cellos that I've heard. The fourth disc is played by I Solisti di Milano; it was recorded in 1971. There are six concertos from Opus 12: R 317, 244, 124, 173, 379, and 361. This final disc in the set sounds the most modern in terms of performance practice.
