Product Description


This useful book enables us to look beyond the clichés and to better appreciate the uniqueness of Vivaldi. STRINGENDO(A) musicological masterpiece. It is also one of the most practical books ever published, a book that enables anyone (...) to find reliable and detailed information on almost every subject connected with Vivaldi within seconds. One cannot be grateful enough to the author for this painstaking and most helpful publication. EARLY MUSICThis fact-packed reference book incorporates the latest research on Vivaldi's life and music and is written in a terse, yet engaging, style. (...) this is an impressively wide ranging guide. EARLY MUSIC TODAYThis amazingly comprehensive volume packs a huge amount of expert scholarship (...) into an extraordinarily small space. (...) an indispensable addition to the shelves of anyone with an interest in Vivaldi, whether scholar, student, performer or music lover. THE CONSORT(Ein) vorteffliches Buch (...), das durch Klarheit und Verstädlichkeit in bester Angelsächsischer Wissenschaftstradition besticht. CONCERTOIt's called a compendium, but it could also be termed a dictionary or pocket (almost) encyclopaedia dedicated to a composer whose present popularity worldwide far exceeds the actual knowledge of his life and works. The completeness of this realization (...) is praiseworthy. MUSICA(T)here is nobody internationally as well-placed as Talbot to provide such a versatile and friendly guide to Vivaldi (...) The Vivaldi Compendium will become an indispensable companion. GRAMOPHONEThis compact volume by Talbot provides an excellent orientation and quick reference to the state of scholarship on the life and music of Antonio Vivaldi. (...) The scope of this bibliography is impressive (...) Highly Recommended. CHOICE(Talbot) is, at least as far as the Anglophone world is concerned, THE expert. ... I am sure that I will consult the Compendium frequently. EARLY MUSIC REVIEW
