Notes & Reviews:

Having attracted attention in particular for the energy and boldness in its approach to the works of J. S. Bach (Bach's complete works for instrumental ensemble on Alpha), Cafe Zimmermann is now exploring the repertoire of the Red Priest, beginning with Estro Armonico, one of the most emblematic masterpieces of the Baroque repertoire. The great clarity of the ensemble's interpretations as much as the quality of its instruments (including a quartet by the Italian instrument maker Guadagnini), and Pablo Valetti's fiery virtuosity are present to make us rediscover this masterful work.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The playing is extremely vigorous and virtuosic. There are 14 string players plus harpsichord. The recording is close and remarkably vivid. As it stands, this is quite bracing and enjoyable Vivaldi-making.
