Product Description

Despite the popularity of works such as The Four Seasons and La Stravaganza, many of Vivaldi’s 250 concertos for violin remain largely unknown.

The new recordings of the concertos RV 187 and 281 are based on Vivaldi’s original manuscript scores and capture the thrilling spontaneity of his compositional style. The concerto RV283 also includes a previously unpublished cadenza from the notebook of Vivaldi’s protégé Anna Maria.

Very much a man of the 21st Century, Giuliano Carmignola combines his passion for the baroque with his love of motorcycling, which he calls, “Vivaldi con moto - motion and emotion from a MOTOcyclist-musician.”

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Sid Nuncius HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on 27 May 2013
Format: Audio CD
This is first-rate Vivaldi playing, I think. Among the massive slew of recordings of Vivaldi concertos a few stand out as having a fresh, informed and genuinely sincere approach and this is one of them. There is a rawness and pulsating attack almost throughout the disc which gives it a real edge and meaning which is a world away from the Vivaldi-as-muzack stuff which has led many to dismiss him as a lightweight composer of Baroque Easy Listening.

Playing on gut strings, the orchestra under Ottavio Dantone really attacks these pieces and even in some of the largo movements there is drive and often drama which lifts it well above the ordinary. Carmignola is brilliant as soloist here, fully equal to the gutsy passages but also genuinely tender and affecting where appropriate.

I'm generally rather suspicious of covers featuring "I'm a cool dude" pictures of the artists, but there is no need for dubiety here. I think this is a genuinely outstanding performance and one which has become a favourite in my rather overcrowded collection of Vivaldi concerti. It's a worthy companion to Carmignola's excellent Vivaldi double violin concerto disc with Viktoria Mullova Vivaldi: Concertos for two Violins and to his very fine Haydn, too Haydn: Violin Concertos. Very warmly recommended.

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By JM Olmesdahl on 23 April 2013
Format: Audio CD
Perhaps it's the particular selection of concertos on this disc, perhaps it's the pairing up of Carmignola with Ottavio Dantone and his excellent ensemble, Accademia Bizantina, but I find this to be the most exciting of the three Vivaldi discs Carmignola has thus far released for Archiv. As much as I have enjoyed Carmignola's previous 2 pairings with the Venice Baroque Orchestra under Andrea Marcon, I find the Accademia Bizantina to be a more vigorous and exciting group. The RV 281 concerto, which dramatically opens the disc, appeared before in another exciting rendition by Fabio Biondi in the early days of the Opus 111 label (with the ever thoughtful Alessandrini at the harpsichord) and, as then, here too it is a marvellous programme opener, in my opinion worth the price of the disc alone. Production standards are very much in keeping with the previous Archiv discs mentioned above. The sound is vivid and beautifully transparent. There is no run-through feel here. With playing as abundant in lyricism as we get here it's hard not to enjoy. 5 Stars without hesitation.

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
In his liner notes, the distinguished musicologist Olivier Fourès observes that all the concertos on this disc date after 1729 - Vivaldi's final decade, in other words, when many of his energies were devoted to opera (and indeed Fourès highlights parallels between Griselda and RV189, for example). Much of this music is undeniably dramatic in character regardless of any direct correspondence between the concertos recorded here and Vivaldi's works for the stage, like the wonderful Concerto in e that opens the set. Remarkably, Fourès neglects to mention the slow movement to RV254 - not just the most dramatic movement on the CD but arguably of Vivaldi's entire output. It is spellbinding stuff that would surely find a place in any decent Vivaldi anthology.

The music recorded here could find no greater advocate than Carmignola, who combines lyricism with power, at times pushing the limits of bowed strings to breaking point (witness his attacks in the final Allegro of RV281, always threatenting to produce those horrendous squeaks we associate with novice violinists). He is admirably supported by the Accademia Bizantina, who add entrancing layers of interest throughout, from plucked strings especially.

This CD boasts a world premier recording (RV283) and offers another concerto (RV187) in its 'original' version. I'm not sure that such a decision is doing this particular concerto any favours. As Fourès points out here and elsewhere, Vivaldi's first attempts can be more inspired and spontaneous than later revisions (which often merely simplify difficult passages for soloists of limited capabilities). Carmignola, of course, doesn't have technical limitations. Even so, it's difficult to see the advantage of presenting RV187 in its unrevised and extended form.

Format: Audio CD
"Vivaldi Con Moto" is the latest Archiv Produktion recording from virtuoso violinist Giuliano Carmignola, the violin master of Baroque music and the perfectionist music of Antonio Vivaldi in particular. He is recorded playing inspired, beautiful versions of Vivaldi concertos which Carmignola ostensibly 'listens to' while driving his motorcycle across Italy. With excellent support from Accademia Bizantina under the baton of maestro Ottavio Dantone, Giuliano presents the glorious world premier of Concerto in F major, RV 283, and original manuscript interpretations of the Concerto in E minor RV 281 and the Concerto in C major RV 187 which shares musical commonality with the opera Griselda. In addition there are marvelous performances of Concerto in D major RV 232, Concerto in E flat major RV 254, and Concerto in D minor RV 243, composed 'sans' the E string (Some versions of this recording also have the Largo movement from Concerto in A major RV 350.) The Vivaldi treasure troves 'unearthed' from sources such as European monastery basements and ancient library boxes continue to yield fresh dazzling music for musicians such as Giuliano Carmignola and Accademia Bizantina by way of the composing genius of the Red Priest for the benefit of the music world. These are great performances from stem to stern. My Highest Recommendation. 5 MASTERFUL Stars! (18 tracks, ~70 minutes. Mr Carmignola plays a 1739 Florenus Guidantus violin.)
