La Stravaganza - 12 Violin Concertos Op.4
A new installment of the ongoing recording project by L'Arte dell'Arco, recording the complete Opus 1‐12 by Vivaldi. This release presents the complete Trio Sonatas Op. 1 by the Venetian master, sonatas composed for 2 violins and basso continuo. These works firmly put Vivaldi on the map, his first publication as Opus 1 established his reputation as a master composer. His Opus 1 is a direct "hit", bold and daring music of high voltage, bearing the stamp of true genius. The performances of L'Arte dell'Arco and it's leader Federico Guglielmo have the same shock effect as the music itself: highly dramatic, even theatrical, highlighting the inventiveness and originality of the music, originating from a deep love of the composer and is work. World premiere recording authorized and based on the Critical Edition by Fabrizio Ammetto, Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi, Fondazione Giorgio Cini, Venice.
