Comp Oboe Ctos
Vivaldi: Complete Oboe Concertos / Fabretti, Guglielmo, L'Arte dell'Arco / Composer: Antonio Vivaldi / Performer: Pierluigi Fabretti / Conductor: Federico Guglielmo / Orchestra/Ensemble: L'Arte dell'Arco / Number of Discs: 3 / Length: 3 Hours 1 Mins. All the critical editions used for this new complete recording were made by Pier Luigi Fabretti, soloist on this new recording, on the basis of meticulous comparisons with period manuscripts, printed scores and parts. The first complete recording of the oboe concertos by Vivaldi on period instruments. Vivaldi's oboe concertos are deservedly popular; the versatile, singing qualities of the instrument perfectly suit the cantilenas, brilliance and virtuosity of Vivaldi's concertante style. The performances of soloist Pierluigi Fabretti (principal oboist of Les Arts Florissants) and L'Arte dell'Arco, led by Federico Guglielmo brim with energy, furioso in the allegros, dolce in the andantes. Several works receive their first recording on original instruments.
