Proper 442 hz Venetian time! Superior period instruments, strings, and bows! Recorded in the castles, palaces, and venues where they were actually performed for the royalty and nobility of the day!

Best sound quality and production I ever heard!
Best ensemble I ever heard!

Giovanni Guglielmo and the L'Arte Dell'Arco label have set the highest bar in music to date on planet Earth !!! Yes!!! Seriously!!!! (and, no!, I don't work for them)

Tartini is on the same supreme master level as Vivaldi. Tartini is deep and pontificates with his violin concertos! Tartini was the supreme violin virtuosic and consummate composer, adept and matchless in his skills!

If you like Vivaldi you will really like Tartini, probably even more afterward, as Vivaldi music seems like a primer for Tartini ensemble genius .

Paganini was inspired by Tartini! The whole devil mythos was taken from Tartini!

Warning! such perfect sound and unreal compositional proficiency and cleverness may be outside of some listener's audible and musical comprehension. There is no musical solecism here only talented genius!!

I use to think Telarc and Deutsche Gramophone were tops till I heard this!

You Are Welcome !!!

Good Day!!

EDIT: Apparently, Amazon has some crossed links. If you are looking for a review for the 5th, 6th or 8th volume, check the comment section following this review of Vol.2.

On the 2nd disc of the ambitious undertaking to record all of the 135 violin concertos of Giuseppe Tartini (1692-1770), L'Arte dell'Arco tackles Op.2. First published in 1733, the actual date of completion is in question because of Tartini's penchant for rewrites. Other editions show alternative movements supplied as late as 1739, and this CD generously includes them all.

Tartini's prodigious output spans the late Baroque to the Classical era, and his music reflects elements of both. All of the 6 concertos of Op.2 follow the familiar Baroque pattern of `fast-slow-fast'. In duple meter, the opening `Allegro's display a broad array of textures and effects, but all demand virtuosic technique and extraordinary skill from the soloist. Often they will contrast a brief, almost choppy primary motif with the longer solo phrases in the cadenzas, which often employ double stops and extensive string crossings at high velocity. Slower and gentler, the 2nd movements exhibit an even wider range of qualities while the finales tend to be light and dancing. However, unlike the op.1 set where most closing movements were in triple meter, in the concertos of Op.2 not a single one is.

A word about pitch ---
Unlike the op.1 recording where the pitch was 440HZ, here it is 442HZ which to our modern ears may sound somewhat shrill. Not only do the seven members of L'Arte dell'Arco play almost totally without vibrato, but the small size of the ensemble doesn't lend itself to a rich, resonant tone.

Tartini seldom wrote out his solo passages, especially in these earlier compositions. Only in Concerto No.6, D.

These guys are the best! Make sure to buy the complete concerti 8 volumes, it's worth the couple hundred bucks.
