As for the romantic-sounding slow movements, I wouldn't claim right away that they're romantic. They certainly are emotional, as they should be. Nobody knows exactly how it was performed in Vivaldi's day, but I think that Carmignola/Marcon have presented viable and excellent interpretations so far. Don't forget that musicians should on one hand try to come as close as possible to the composer's intentions, but on the other hand musicians should live with the music they play and put their own personality into it. The artistic choices made in this recording are fully convincing.
Carmignola and Marcon continue their already significant enrichment to Vivaldi interpretations and recordings by another awesome CD. And yes - you do have to listen to this CD more times, because some of the themes in these concertos might not seem immediately captivating, but you should fall in love with them after listening a couple of times. After having listened many times you will realize why, within Vivaldi's concert output, the term "late violin concertos" makes sense.Read more ›
Musically, these are unique concertos among Vivaldi's output. They echo Tartini and later Italian composers. Several concertos offer the soloist notes higher on the staff than we usually hear from Vivaldi. Nuances of tempi and silence are sometimes also suspect.
Hearing this concertos was a treat, yet I had only wished someone else (Biondi, Manze, Onofri) had recorded them.
I mention this because they released five outstanding discs for Sony: three Vivaldi discs, the Bach violin sonatas, and--this is why I'm writing--a Locatelli disc that was never released domestically in the U.S.
If you're a Carmignola/VBO fan, you'll definitely want to order this Locatelli disc through Amazon.co.uk. I'm listening to it right now--wonderful stuff! The disc contains concerto numbers 1,2,10, and 11 from Locatelli's op. 3, "The Art of the Violin." Also, if such things help you to make purchasing decisions, this disc received a great review in Gramophone magazine recently. Buy it now before it disappears into record label oblivion!!

Music,Soloist, orchestra and recording are worth every dollar I paid for this CD.Published 7 months ago by marcus pincus
Orchestra: strong, vivid performance, comparable to the 2003 Gramophone Award winner 'Arte dei suonatori', (with Rachel Podger - La stravaganza). The continuo is brilliant. Read morePublished on Dec 12 2003 by george
