Notes & Reviews:

Vivaldi's Opus 14 Sonatas are part of the cello's 'great repertoire and also some of the works from the last years of the 'Red Priest'. Quite simply - and regardless of Igor Stravinsky's curiously rash judgment regarding Vivaldi's work - , these sonatas are splendid, making this instrument sound as only a composer who is an experienced virtuoso instrumentalist himself - in this case, a violinist - can do. Marco Ceccato is one of the members most often noticed of Amandine Beyer's ensemble, Gli Ingogniti, ('...Cellist Marco Ceccato is equally impressive,' Gramophone, March 2013). Zig Zag Territoires wanted to devote this recording to him, convinced of his great talent and of the singularity of his sound imagination.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Vivaldi wrote eight cello sonatas and a two-bar fragment, R38, here completed by Olivier Foures. Six of the complete sonatas are played here by Ceccato with a varied band of continuo players. I say varied since everything is used, including another cello and bass viol, guitar, lute, harpsichord, and organ - a different combination of forces for each movement. The style is early music but expressively satisfying. Ceccato employs a blend of accuracy and improvisation that makes this an individual and convincing presentation of these lovely works. I only wish there had been space for the other two sonatas to satisfy my collecting instincts. I think you will enjoy this collection more than many of the existing ones, and it gives the early music movement a good reason for existence.
