5.0 out of 5 stars Not just fireworks 26 July 2001
Format:Audio CD
It is impossible to resist Bartoli in this recital. She is a singer difficult to resist at any time, but this vividly delivered selection of Vivaldi arias is as precious for her contribution as the works are rare. Nothing daunts her: not the rapid spitfire coloratura work or the elegaic poetry of some of the arias. True, some of the runs are aspirated a little too much (perhaps discernable on record only) but they do not spoil the beauty of tone Bartoli pours into each track. Essential listening, for Bartoli, for Vivaldi, or for lovers of antique music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Exhilerating showcase 1 Mar 2009
By enthusiast TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Some people look down on Vivaldi as not too serious. But he wrote some lovely music and, if his range is not the equal of, say, Handel, he is still one of the true baroque greats. This album is a real showcase - both of Vivaldi and Bartoli - but it is more. It is also just a lovely album to listen to ... and again and again.

Bartoli's singing is faultless: her voice beautiful, her technique masterful. It's all great fun. You can wow your friends - it's a classical record that won't bore your dinner party guests. If you loved the Four Seasons and want a second Vivaldi record to follow on with then this is the record for you (yes, it's that essential!). If you want an introduction to Vivaldi as an opera composer, then look no further. Not as scholarly as the notes try to imply ... but stunning music, stunningly performed.

What a discovery! Dspite being a fan of Baroque music and period instrument performance for many years I was knocked out by this performance. I have recenly heard Cecilia Bartoli sign Haydn at a London Prom and have been following her career since the beginning so I didn't need much encouragement to listen to this CD. All is ask is that people listen to the Vivaldi Album and discover the true beauty of Vivaldi's vocal work. The choir and orchestra are also superb. This CD is also nicely packaged. I urge Decca to record Bartoli singing more Vivaldi and similar Baroque music. A must have for any lover of the human voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cecilia Sings for All Seasons! 15 Jun 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Cecilia Bartoli brings to life Vivaldi! In "The Vivaldi Album," this dynamic, charismatic, and brilliant mezzo transforms Vivaldi like no other! What a performance! While many may feel that "The Four Seasons" is about the only thing recognizable of Vivaldi, Ms Bartoli takes the music and ascends to the highest levels. With the Arnold Schoenberg Choir, she clearly posts her claim (and lives up to her reputation)as being the best mezzo around today. She notes on the CD liner page that her music is "...a fascinating journey of discovery, exploring...Vivaldi's operas...which have been ignored for far too long." She has succeeded with her efforts--and these efforts seem so effortless.
She has triumped in New York with "Cinderella," among others and certainly has claimed a place in the modern world not only of opera and classical music but of "music for the masses," just as well. What a triumph! Bravissima!

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential Baroque music recording 24 Feb 2008
By Marcolorenzo TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These arias from Vivaldi operas, which may not be the greatest of dramatic works when heard in their complete form, contain many splendid arias which are recorded here. This album is one, if not the best album of Bartoli. It is essential for any Baroque music collection. The playing of Giardino Armonico is spectacular. A real must for any Baroque music or Vivaldi lover.

Where has this music been all my life? I can't remember the last time I have played such unexpectedly exciting music. Such exhilaration and joy from this suprising package. I hesitate to say funky but all of sudden there are burst of pure joy and yes - funky music!

In Welsh the verb "canu" translates as "to sing" and "to play" (an instrument). Cecilia Bartoli does just that, she sings and "plays" these Vivaldi's arias with great virtuosity.
