Vivaldi: String Concertos



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The acclaimed Polish period band Arte dei Suonatori perform eight of Vivaldi's concertos a Quattro. Their version of Handel's 12 Concerto grossi Op. 6 was awarded 'Orchestral Choice of the Month' in BBC Music Magazine, alongside further critical acclaim from the international music press. As well as being a major composer in the formation of the solo concerto, he also was the leading exponent of the older concerto a quattro - music in four parts, with several players to a part. His works in this genre are notable not only for their beauty, but also for their experimental character and for providing the most important examples of fugal writing in Vivaldi's instrumental music. This recording includes eight of the concertos, as well as the Sinfonia from the serenata La Senna festeggiante (The Rejoicing Seine) composed in honour of the young French king Louis XV, and the Sonata a 4 in E flat major 'Al Santo Sepolcro'.
