Notes & Reviews:

In his famous 1720 pamphlet Il teatro alla moda, composer Benedetto Marcello satirized what he saw as "excesses" in the new style of Venetian opera espoused by Vivaldi and others. Each of the qualities he mocked, from cadenzas and virtuoso variations to the addition of popular dances and sound effects, has provided inspiration for the works on this new release from Amandine Beyer and Gli incogniti. Vivaldi's experiments - his spontaneity, his striking juxtapositions and contrasts - are key to the gloriously theatrical flavor of his instrumental music.

The Independent, 21st November 2015
A parade of exhausting virtuosity applied to grace and beauty, played with dazzling vivacity by Amandine Beyer.

The Observer, 29th November 2015
An earthy, raw and brilliant response to some of Vivaldi's most scintillating violin concertos.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2015
Beyer's exciting young group have gleefully thrown Marcello's criticisms back in his face by showing not just how vivid Vivaldi's theatricality can be, but that it shows itself in its greatest depth in his concertos rather than his stage works ...flow, colour, lyricism and poise combine, and Vivaldi's spirit lives to command the stage.

Irish Times, 1st January 2016
A consistently invigorating kaleidoscope of Vivaldian invention.

BBC Music Magazine, February 2016
While on paper there's obvious common ground - Vivaldian sequences, dazzling arpeggios across the strings, languid aria-like slow movements - when imbued with the intensity and imagination of Beyer and Gli Incogniti these emerge as a constant stream of new colours, emotions and effects... forget the cheap jibes; Vivaldi was a supreme master of musical invention, as this recording triumphantly demonstrates.
