Notes & Reviews:

Since the early 1990s, Antonio Vivaldi and Fabio Biondi have become an inseparable pair for many music lovers around the world. In his latest recording for Glossa, Mr. Biondi offers further proof of Vivaldi's astonishing imaginative powers as a composer of violin concertos, matched by Biondi's own dynamic and cultured virtuosity as a violinist (and director). With these Farewell Concertos, Biondi - leading Europa Galante - turns to works written by a Vivaldi very near the end of his life as he traveled to Vienna in a desperate search for creative opportunities. I concerti dell'addio sees the composer in a Vienna in mourning for its recently deceased emperor and himself more attuned to the now fashionable galante style, bearing witness to Vivaldi's late style as it headed in the direction of Tartini and Locatelli.

Gramophone Magazine, April 2015
This is a real homage to the baroque bow ... his [Vivaldi's] music has that chameleon way of being almost unrecognisable from player to player and almost without fail he's as I want him to be when he's being played by Biondi; what you get here is a performance of profound artistry ... the subtleties in this disc just take my breath away.
