Vivaldi: String Concerti.

Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante have earned a reputation for excellence in their pursuit of historically informed performance of Baroque music including Vivaldi. This recording, the second in a series of concertos for diverse instruments, has been well received. I don't disagree Biondi and pals are a good group but it's my opinion you can do better elsewhere and spend less money doing it.
This was the great collection of 12 varied and exciting violin concertos that turned Bach on to concerto writing. In fact, he transcribed several of these works for solo harpsichord, organ-even for harpsichords and orchestra. What fascinated him most was the balanced, three-movement form, the brilliance of the solo passages, the tunefulness of the music generally, and Vivaldi's seemingly inexhaustible storehouse of invention.

Vivaldi’s concertos – so irresistibly inventive and colourful – have become central to the world’s appreciation of Baroque music. In the composer’s own time his brilliantly innovative works created something of an international sensation, even exciting the admiration of Johann Sebastian Bach. Doing full justice to the Venetian master’s genius, Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante give performances of captivating virtuosity and immediacy.
