Notes & Reviews:

After the successful publication of Vivaldi's earlier collections," La Stravaganza" and "L'Estro Armonico," his publisher, Estienne Roger, was eager to capitalise on Vivaldi's rising popularity and published this, Vivaldi's Op. 7 in 1720, a collection of twelve new concertos, ten for violin and two for oboe. However, recent research has cast considerable doubt on this collection's authorship, and certain doubt on the oboe concrtos, showing that many of the hallmarks of Vivaldi's work are absent in these works, and it is likely that Vivaldi neither authorized not approved of the publication. Whether these works were penned by Vivaldi himself or merely exist as a worthy tribute to his work, they are realized expertly in this lively performance by Federico Guglielmo and his ensemble, L'Arte dell'Arco. Guglielmo has been an active performer in the early music circle for many years, having performed with such groups as the Academy of Ancient Music and the Handel & Haydn Society of Boston, and he is joined on this recording by the oboist Pier Luigi Fabretti, who has previously performed with Concerto Köln and I Barocchisti, among others.

American Record Guide, March/April 2016
Fortunately, the performances are excellent. Guglielmo, an experienced Vivaldian, plays as if he fully believes in the authenticity of all ten of the violin concertos. His fast movements are springy and propulsive, and the slow movements are quite expressive. As for the two oboe concertos - whosever they are - they are treated deftly by Pier Luigi Fabretti, whose period oboe has a nicely mellow sound that avoids the bite of a modern instrument.

Besides the two soloists, the ensemble consists of only eight musicians, the strings all one per part, so there is a vivacious feeling of chamber-music-making that matches the soloists' enthusiasm. Choices among the continuo instruments allow clever varieties of color.

Close, nicely analytic sound. Good booklet notes. This should win the unloved Op. 7 set some attention and respectability at last.
