Vivaldi devotees, especially those seeking novelty, have been supremely well served lately. First, Gli Incognito's 'Les quatre saisons', which featured two exceptional (?)late violin concerti as 'bonus tracks'. Then two CDs from Nave: New Discoveries, including a beautiful concerto for oboe and cello; and now this one, Il Ballo (The Dance), offering no less than seven violin concerti, most of them unheard since the C18! Not since the advent of Carmignola and his 'Late Violin Concertos' (Sony) has the world of Vivaldi seemed so vibrant.

Olivier Fourés, writing the liner notes, highlights three concerti as being of particular interest - RV210, RV333 and RV310 - while the rest, he thinks, are of 'less stature'. But one of the triumphs of this set is that there is something highly engaging about all of them. Even the supposedly lesser works delight the listener with their quirky charms and their (often dance-like) exuberance. Take, for instance, the Concerto in E, RV268. While possessing, arguably, no great melody or striking rhythmic features, it effortlessly expresses joie de vivre - assisted by charismatic and perceptive playing by soloist Duilio Galfetti, for whom music is clearly more than dots on the page. His willingness to show his own musical personality and wit (in much the same manner as Biondi) certainly adds variety and interest to works which could sound routine in other hands. Likewise the playing of I Barocchisti - equally willing to show creative engagement (the unexpected tremolo effect they conjure up in the closing cadence of RV352's Largo matches the soloist's skittishness in the closing cadence of RV350's final Allegro). The recording, meanwhile, is unimpeachable.

And the 'dance' theme? Does the term really lend coherence to these concerti?

This disc, recorded in 2007-8, continues the series of recordings intended eventually to encompass all the works by Vivaldi in the Turin Library. This is the largest collection of Vivaldi scores and is a colossal undertaking for a recording company. On this disc there are another 7 concertos to savour, some already may be familiar but most will be new experiences.

Once more we are introduced to yet another soloist of considerable skill and imagination who is well matched by the I Bariccisti orchestra of period specialists. The playing is typical of these new Italian views of Vivaldi and thus every opportunity is taken to observe every accent, syncopation and interesting turn of phrase. This is a completely enlivening experience and tends to make performances dating from pre-period performances sound positively earthbound, and some early period performances sound technically under-nourished.

Vivaldi's inspiration seems endless and never seems to flag or to become in any way mechanical or system driven.

I would suggest that this volume of this series is well worth considering and investigating. A word of warning though. Once sampled there is a real risk that others may quickly be added to a collection. There are a lot of worthwhile titles so far and a long way to go!

Vivaldi is sometimes criticised as easy listening. If by that one means lively, varied, imaginative and intelligent music with the pretentious pomposity taken out then they could be right. This one is a joy to listen to.

Good recording, but a bit on the bright side for my taste.
About the work, Vivaldi is always Vivaldi...
