Format: Audio CD
The "John Walsh edition" of the Red Priest's "La Stravaganza" - which is the main material in this CD - contains 5 concerti from the original Op. 4. In addition, the Walsh edition includes a 6th concerto from an unknown source. Very interestingly, the second movement of this mysterious concerto seems nearly the same as the slow movement of the A minor concerto from this same collection. (This is pointed out by the author of the program notes for Hogwood's recording of the Op. 4.)

Despite some of my reservations, out of all the recordings of "La Stravaganza" that I've personally heard, this is the most satisfying and pleasing to my taste - even though it doesn't contain all the 12 concerti from Op. 4. Some of my favorite tracks in this CD include the first movement of the E minor concerto, the whole of the A minor concerto, and the second movement of the D major concerto.

Format: Audio CD
Thi album is a selection of small violin concerti from La Stravaganza, one of three sets of 12 small concert pieces that vivaldi developed to help show off his skills when as a priest he was teaching violin to young women early in his career. My first exposure to Fabio Biondi and Europa Galante was a 2001 recording of another of the three sets, "Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione"

The tirle of "Ii Cimeento dell'armoniae dell inventione" roughly translates as the "contest between harmony and invention" and Biondi's hell bent for leather (I love to show how fast I can play) seems enitrely appropriate for that set. He continues that same style of play for "La Stravaganza" with roughly the same result. In 2001 the effect was thrilling but now seems a little tiresome.

"La Stravaganza", however translates roughly as "extravagant, extatic or serene."
and Biondi's perpetually excited style doesn't seem to work that well here. Instead listen to Rachel Podger's version with Arte Dei Suonatori.Vivaldi: La Stravaganza Her tone and entonation are superior to Biondi's and the sound of her small HIP band is wonderful.

Fabio plays in an italian manner. Rachel digs much deeper and plays music of an extravagant nature. As far as other versions go, you are on your own. These are the two that I am aware of that claim to be historically informed.

It's a good recording of Vivaldi's La Stravaganza. The sound is excellent, as well the orchestra and the soloists. But this CD last less than an hour. Would be better with at least one more concerto.

Lesser known works by Vivaldi that are of equal quality to The Four Seasons. Recommend this recording to anyone who appreciates great Baroque music.
