Product Description

Product Description

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.

Review

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

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By I. Giles HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 31 Jan. 2014
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This well recorded disc from 2013 continues the excellent Naive series of discs aimed at recording the complete works of Vivaldi held in the Turin library. That amounts to over 450 manuscripts and covers the complete range of secular, non-secular, stage and concert works written by Vivaldi and is therefore the largest single such collection in the world. This is volume 56 of the series so far.

Vivaldi, a virtuoso violinist of international repute, wrote considerable numbers of violin concertos, notable for their remarkable variety. Among these are about twenty concertos for two violins, of which six are presented here. This is volume 1 of such works so presumably there will be more to follow. Many of the works exist in other forms and written for different pairs of instruments. The most well-known double concertos, not included here, are to be found in the Opus 3 set of concerti grossi, L'Estro Armonico.

The six concertos on this disc are expertly played by Riccaro Minasi and Dmitry Sinkovsky who are also features as soloist in the single violin concertos volumes 4 and 5 respectively. Each of the two soloists takes the lead violin part in three of the current concertos. The double concertos were written between about 1711 at the time of the Opus 3 set to the 1730's, with most being written from the 1720's onwards. They are thus works of maturity and reflect Vivaldi's continuing interest in stretching the bounds of technical and creative possibilities.

All the six concertos presented here demonstrate both that technical and creative imagination with dramatic contrasts, demanding high-lying passage work and rapid figuration of a scale and arpeggio nature in the outer fast movements. There is also much use made of imitation and mirror imaging.

Excellent recording, great playing, lovely music. Insofar as the Vivaldi violin element goes, the Naive series of Vivaldi productions is setting the standard in so many ways. Not least in the employment of some really impressive violin playing talent.

Have enjoyed all 6 volumes to date and looking forward to the intended 6 more.
