5.0 out of 5 stars Knowledge of Italian NOT Needed =) Dec 28 2009
By M. Figg - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
To second what an earlier reviewer had to say, the combination of violinst Enrico Onofri and composer Vivaldi is a gift for the listener. My only regret is not purchasing this disc sooner! This collection of violin concertos with titles is the strongest argument I've heard against charges that Vivaldi's music is repetitive or mechanical (and musical evidence has to be stronger than verbal, right?). In addition to the soloist's singing tone, lusciuous orchestral textures and rhythmic energy of the disc, the individual character of each of these pieces is brilliantly illuminated for the audience. So we get a showy, strutting "Mogul", nerve-wracking (yet to my ears humorous!) "Inequietudine", a dreamy "Riposo" (dig the silvery yet warm muted strings), a rustic, stalking "Caccia" and a sneaky, insinuating "Sospetto". Two listenings and this disc has become (alongside Biondi's 'Estro Armonico') my favorite Vivaldi orchestral album! Even the liner notes are great: historically informative and insightful about the perfomer's love of this music. Moving, beautiful performances, highly recommended!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A La Caccia! Is Autumn! July 16 2011
By Felipe de Moraes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Since the introdution of the first concerto, we can see the autumn colors. Strong chords, which resemble the march of the hunting horses, annoucing what is to come.
Although concerts are loose, the albun is organized so that transportate us into a story, or it can be said, a hunting day in the woods. We are led through the concertos for a only think, the concertos become sequential.
We start from a hectic morning refreshed, through horseback riding, wield bows and arrows, guns, concerns, suspicions and humor storms, to the final resting under a tree enjoying the sky and the air almost under the sound of silence.
I recommend the album for the repertoire and logical sequence, and each concert is a most delight than other.
The interpretation is exquisite, in charge of the Academia Montis Regalis and the violinist Enrico Onofri, who has a different and unique vision, giving us an almost romantic Vivaldi, but purely Baroque.
The violin is concise and rational, but with the "furie" characteristic of Vivaldi at the right times, the tranquility of a gondola ride in Venice, and the passion and fire that makes us realize a new Vivaldi, inserting new concepts of interpretation, recovering much of the Baroque, but without escaping the characteristics and possibilities of the eighteenth century period.

5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE IT! Sept. 14 2008
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Onofri is to Vivaldi what Milstein was to Bach-I can only say he seems to play Vivaldi with a unique understanding and approach that makes already wonderful Vivaldi literally melt in my ear...I love this CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sensational playing of yet more Vivaldian genius Nov. 25 2012
By I. Giles - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This disc is one of an extensive series of recordings intended to record the 450 Vivaldi manuscripts held in the Turin National University Library. This is an immense project and so far it has resulted in discs of extraordinary accomplishment and interest as on this occasion.

The concerto discs alone, of which I have bought all, feature different soloists throughout and it is amazing what a wealth of performing talent has been found. Furthermore, and most importantly, the project is completely worthwhile as it so clearly shows that Vivaldi continuously wrote with a seemingly inexhaustible fund of musical imagination combined with technical knowledge that completely refutes any idea that he was writing with any pre-determined repeatable pattern in mind.

This disc is almost worth purchasing for the first concerto alone which has an inspirational and technical content that almost beggars belief. The same could be said to describe the playing of Enrico Onofri the solo violinist. There is nothing superior to be found in the more well-known Vivaldi concertos and I would suggest that this disc is most desirable.

The recording quality is as fine as the music and its performance and it seems likely that if the program is of interest to future purchasers they will probably find this a very rewarding disc to collect. They may do as I have done and go on to collect the rest of the series and keep an eye out for any further releases in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best performance of Vivaldi violin concerti i've ever heard Jan. 15 2011
By Maxim Khinkiladze - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
i know Vivaldi violin concertos for many years, so i heard a lot of performances of his violin concerti, but this is the best performance of Vivaldi violin concertos i've ever heard, firstly thank of Onofri and also De Marchi's orchestra. They make very imaginative work. Concertos on this CD have different moods, they are one of the best known Vivaldi imaginative concertos. And thanks to performances we not just hear this music we could see it, see show in acts! Higly recommended)))
