5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational playing of yet more Vivaldian genius, 25 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Vivaldi: Concerti per violini I 'La caccia' (Audio CD)
This disc is one of an extensive series of recordings intended to record the 450 Vivaldi manuscripts held in the Turin National University Library. This is an immense project and so far it has resulted in discs of extraordinary accomplishment and interest as on this occasion.

The concerto discs alone, of which I have bought all, feature different soloists throughout and it is amazing what a wealth of performing talent has been found. Furthermore, and most importantly, the project is completely worthwhile as it so clearly shows that Vivaldi continuously wrote with a seemingly inexhaustible fund of musical imagination combined with technical knowledge that completely refutes any idea that he was writing with any pre-determined repeatable pattern in mind.

This disc is almost worth purchasing for the first concerto alone which has an inspirational and technical content that almost beggars belief. The same could be said to describe the playing of Enrico Onofri the solo violinist. There is nothing superior to be found in the more well-known Vivaldi concertos and I would suggest that this disc is most desirable.

The recording quality is as fine as the music and its performance and it seems likely that if the program is of interest to future purchasers they will probably find this a very rewarding disc to collect. They may do as I have done and go on to collect the rest of the series and keep an eye out for any further releases in the future.
