It's worth getting as a companion piece to the previous Vivaldi release from DG by Giuliano Carmignola.
J. Dupont Jr.
This particular CD deserves special attention not only to the baroque lover but also to the general music listener.
Miguel Cunanan
I can picture traveling though the rolling hills of Tuscany with this in the car, making for a unique experience.

Where to start?
Well...

First of all, it's the Venice Baroque Orchestra.
Starting from the first track, I was instantly astounded. The Sinfonia in C is such an exciting piece; the first movement full of sparks of brilliance -from crisp violin lines to the pounding basso continuo rythym.

This group of baroque masters can portray so much movement and emotion through concertos such as the g minor 157 and 156 while still amusing the listener through excellent, authentic baroque playing.

Throughout this whole performance of 12 concerti and sinfonie, the listener might as well believe that they have been teleported to 18th century Italy, watching Vivaldi's virtuosos of his Ospedale della Pieta (an orphanage where Vivaldi spent a majority of his life, transforming orphan girls into virtuosa violinists).

Yes, Vivaldi must be rejoicing in his grave. I'm sure he rarely does. The Venice Baroque Orchestra's performance of these twelve pieces strongly puts themselves in a very high tier of recordings. Hundreds and hundreds of Vivaldi recordings have been recorded. This particular CD deserves special attention not only to the baroque lover but also to the general music listener.

I guarantee that the listener will grow to appreciate baroque music, Vivaldi music in this case, so much that they'd be willing to listen to more recordings by this orchestra under the direction of Andrea Marcon.

Look, the other three reviews gave them 5 stars too.

I'm just another listener who, just like the other three, is so grateful to have the opportunity to listen to such a fine group of musicians who strongly give Vivaldi a distinguish style, so unique from the rest of the baroque composers of his time.

What a treasure.

Yes, the Venice Baroque Orchestra has brought Vivaldi's spirit alive.

This is a pleasing selection of Vivaldi pieces for strings that are not heard often. They are played with taste, style and verve. Very refreshing.

36 tracks of beautiful music. At times, Vivaldi's concertos can sound similar to each other. The conducting style is rich and vibrant. It's worth getting as a companion piece to the previous Vivaldi release from DG by Giuliano Carmignola.
