Accademia Bizantina – Ottavio Dantone.
A Gramophone editor’s Choice, this double album brings together the third volume of Concerti per archi (strings) and the complete Concerti for viola d’amore by the Venetian genius. The Accademia Bizantina and its iconic chief Ottavio Dantone bring to this release a talent so great it is matched only by their dedication. The Vivaldi Edition is an ambitious project begun at the beginning of the century to record some 450 works by Vivaldi, many of them unknown, found in the National University Library of Turin. With the collaboration of today’s leading interpreters of Baroque music we are making available to the public hundreds of works, many in the composer’s own hand and covering every musical genre. Known for but a few iconic pieces of music, Vivaldi’s reputation is quickly changing to that of one of the most influential and prolific composers of the 18th century.
