Notes & Reviews:

Antonio Vivaldi was one of the most successful composers of the Baroque era, best known for his iconic set concertos for violin, The Four Seasons. L'Estro Armonico Op.3 is among the most important printed editions of Vivaldi's concertos; the works immediately met with great acclaim after their publication in 1711, giving way to over 30 reprints in the subsequent 32 years. Indeed, this was the first collection of concerti to be published with a title, showing that the composer himself was aware of the nature of this extraordinary event. The work was originally dedicated to Prince Ferdinando de' Medici, son and heir of Cosimo III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. This special release is the world premiere recording based on the edition by Michael Talbot, of the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice and has been produced in collaboration with Ricordi and Universal Music Publishing. L'Arte dell'Arco is an internationally renowned ensemble that has achieved great acclaim through performances and recordings. Each member is handpicked from the elite of the Italian classical music scene and has performed with many period orchestras across Europe. The group regularly takes part in early music festivals and has, in recent years, toured extensively outside of Europe in the Far East and South America. Artistic Director and Concert Master Federico Guglielmo has been hailed by the Boston Globe as "the new star of the ancient music landscape" and was the winner of the Antonio Vivaldi International Recording Prize, also receiving a Diapason d'Or for his recording of Vivaldi concertos.

American Record Guide, July/August 2015
L'Arte Del Arco makes ideal choices about the number of players, balance of timbres, and the size and composition of the basso continuo group. Of particular usefulness is the inclusion of chamber organ as part of the continuo. For example, in the Allegro (I) of Concerto 6 the organ offers a flute timbre in upper registers and sustained long notes in lower registers so that the edge on the loud and rapid string sound is tempered. That gives the ensemble has a more varied and shaded sound. The organ is rarely used in the slow movements, where the strings are sweet and the tempos sing.
