Notes & Reviews:

This album features concertos by Vivaldi that are seldom heard. Viva Vivaldi, an ensemble that, you guessed it, specializes in Vivaldi, turns in vibrant performances.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
I love Vivaldi's music, and I always will, I'm sure, so I'm always up for hearing a new recording of his works that are not often heard. Three of these concertos, the musicians observe, are rarely, if ever performed (R 506, 508, 547). I think this recording is worth having for having these unusual works all in one place. The performances are lively, and the musicians are in sync. The notes are good, with interesting observations on the works.
