Full of elan and authenticity. 20 Oct. 2011
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For long, the ensemble Akademie Fur Alte Musik Berlin has put forth numerous sterling recordings from the baroque repertoire: Handel, Bach are the major outputs, and also Vivaldi.
If you have any qualms about a German ensemble playing Vivaldi, this recording puts your doubts fully to rest.
First of all, the programme selection deserves the highest praise.
The programme comprises of two Concerti Grossi, one violin concerto and three double concerti. The double concerti are for two oboes, for two cellos and two violins. Of the two violin double concerti, the RV 522 is the most 'famous' piece of the lot, though the Concerti Grossi are also favourites, and the cello double concerto by no means any less in terms of compellingness.
The oboe double concerto RV 535 is a very interesting combination, and the soloists of the Akademie really give the piece its due in their ultra-transparent treatment of the different solo parts.
As for the tutti part, throughout all the pieces, the group is never less than thoroughly alert musically.
It is indeed a pleasant surprise that apart from the famous Italian groups like I Musici, the Europa Galante, et al, the Berlin group is such an adept in Vivaldi's compositions.
Unreservedly recommended.
