This is the 51st title in the Vivaldi Edition and the 6th volume, out of approximately 12, of the series dedicated to the violin concertos whose manuscripts are held in the National Library of Turin. Following two successful volumes of concertos for solo violin and orchestra recorded separately in the Vivaldi Edition, virtuosos Riccardo Minasi and Dmitry Sinkovsky now join forces to record pyrotechnic concertos for two violins and orchestra. This series of 6 concertos is an overview of the complete art of Vivaldi as a composer and violinist: large of musical scale, invention, expression, energy, and of course, virtuosity.
What carries the day with these new performances are rhythmic elasticity, incisive ensemble and an evenly spoken dialogue between the soloists [….] Further instalments are eagerly awaited. --International Record Review
These are performances of unerring buoyancy from Il Pomo d'Oro marked by a compelling sense of engagement. Articulation feels scrupulously clean and crisp together with a remarkable degree of intensity. --Music Web International
