Quel disque ennuyeux pour les connaisseurs de Vivaldi (comme moi). Idéal par contre pour qui n'a jamais entendu les aeuvres du Prêtre roux.

Biondi et sa bande, curieusement mais forcément très docile en raison du programme présenté, nous interprète des tubes de Vivaldi, en toute douceur.

À l'écoute de «l'Inquiétude» pourtant, on sent un enthousiasme certain; Biondi est manifestement en forme et des coups d'archets insoupçonnés fusent ça et la au gré de la fantaisie du violoniste qui en rajoute. Et c'est bien tant mieux ...Cela fait frémir. Mais cette excitation soudaine (près de sept minutes), sera de courte durée.

En effet, languissez vous avec le très sombre Concerto funèbre; ouvrez l'aeil pour «une Tempête dans la Mer » pour flûte «Diretto», hautbois, salmoe et autres.... On est bien loin de l'effervescence de la version pour violon et cordes qui décoiffe dans l'Opus 8. Enfin...

La « Notte» n'a rien ici de spectaculaire pour ceux qui possède la version de Spinosi, nettement supérieure en tout point.

Le concerto en «Écho lointain» est d'un ennui pesant, parfait pour vous assoupir un brin avant le Concerto «Il Reposo» ou la vous dormez à points fermés. Incroyablement plat.

Puis le sempiternel et mille et une fois gravé »Concerto pour deux violoncelles» vous prouvent que Maurizio Naddeo est un virtuose.

Un Diapason d'or ? Oui... Un «Choc » ? Oui...

Alors j'ai sûrement tout faux...

I know Biondi and Europa Galante since they were playing on the label Opus 111. I am a great fan of Europa galante. But...I was quite disappointed when I heard this CD. Mainly because I did not find Biondi the arrogant. But he can't certainly not played like "a little electric tornado" in the "Concerto funebre". It's the same in Concerto "Per eco in lontano". I particularly hate this music with this boring echo;the same music which is repeated from " outer space". The Concerto "Il riposo.."is perfect to relax with the dog. "L'inquietude" is outstanding. Even better than the Carmignola version on Divox Antiqua (1995). "La tempesta di mare" and La Notte" are enough strange and captivating to be considered as interesting performances. But they not be compared with the fabulous interpretation of Jean-Christophe Spinosi (Ensemble Matheus-2002-Label Naive). Finally the "Concerto for 2 cellos and orchestra" has already been recorded in 1993 by Europa Galante(album "Vivaldi Concerti" (Vol.22. Opus 111)). So no great surprise for me there. A very good CD to someone who want to discover Vivaldi with talentuous musicians.

I know I have been very negative in my other reviews of Biondi-cds. Actually, I almost take it back!
He is NOT an opera-conductor, period. But he IS a brilliant violinist! His playing in the Vivaldi concertos is just outstanding. The orchestra is also amazing. I really recommends this set of concertos to anyone not familiar with the Biondi legacy!

Vivaldi is played with excitement by Europa Galante, a string and woodwind orchestra 13 strong here. Some collections of Vivaldi concertos can sound a bit monotonous, but not this carefully selected group of emotively titled short pieces. Instrumentation is varied, the playing is enthusiastic and energetic as needed, and the strings really bite in the staccato "Sea Tempest," the waves slapping hard on the boat. The 6-movement "Night" is remarkably eerie and ghostly, particularly if you can cleanse your ears of all the chromatic pieces written since and try to listen with 18th century expectations. RV 234 is full of unsettling "Apprehension" no matter what later music you have heard, displaying a harried and rapidly modulated sense of harmonic uncertainty. The brief notes with the CD are a slightly strange mixture of English and untranslated Italiano. Fresh and well worth listening closely.
