Notes & Reviews:

World premiere recording of those works. At once flamboyant and profound, violinist and conductor Stefano Montanari employs all the expressive resources and devices of his instrument to introduce these hidden treasures of the Italian violin concerto repertoire. Worthy musical heirs to Corelli and Vivaldi, the little known Razetti and A.M. Montanari were able to transform their stylistic models into original creations, while the likes of Lidarti, Nardini, and Maddalena Lombardini composed in a fresh and lively idiom that was to give rise to Classicism. Stefano Montanari will enthrall listeners with his virtuosity, to be sure, but also with the contagious passion of his playing, a passion he also transmits to Arion Baroque Orchestra, which eloquently accompanies him in this fascinating voyage of Italian discoveries.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
The general feeling of relaxed jazz continues in the Razetti concerto. What Montanari is trying to prove in these performances hardly relates clearly to the non-vibrato approach that he also employs. With Nardini we are back to an orchestra including winds. If you can take it, or find it an attractive mood for this music, it is otherwise well played and a most interesting collection of little-known material.
