Notes & Reviews:

Abandoned at the age of two months and taken in by the Ospedale della Pietà, Chiara (or Chiaretta) rose - within that enclosed charitable institution in Venice - to become one of the leading European violinists of the middle of the 18th century. No stranger to such acclaim, himself, two and a half centuries later, Fabio Biondi, on his first release for Glossa, has devised a CD drawing on the personal diary of this remarkable musician who was taught by Antonio Vivaldi, and later became a virtuoso soloist on the violin, as well as the viola d'amore. The program consists of concertos and sinfonias by composers who, like the prete rosso, taught at the Pietà: Porta, Porpora, Martinelli, Latilla, Perotti and Bernasconi are all musicians whose compositions charm and delight as much today as they did in the time of Chiara.

Along with this inspired vision-in-sound of the 18th century musical world of the Ospedale comes a half-hour long DVD dramatization; CD and DVD admirably reflect both the virtuosic skills demanded of the instrumental soloists of the day and the revolution in musical tastes (inside the Pietà as well as outside it), as the Baroque passed to Classicism via the galant style. 8424562229020

The Guardian, 28th February 2014
Biondi himself plays the solo parts, in his usual robustly stylish way. It's all a bit hard-driven at times, but with the accompanying documentary on DVD it makes a useful package.
