Notes and Editorial Reviews

Having explored the neglected repertoire of German overtures and the favorite concertos of Mozart, the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin transports us to sunny Italy for a sumptuous program of Vivaldi’s concerti grossi and concertos for one or two soloists. At this Venetian feast of music-making, virtuosity has pride of place and the menu includes the Double Concertos RV 522 and 531, the Concerti grossi RV 156 and 574, and the violin concerto RV 265 from L’estro armonico (Op. 3 No. 12). Bon appétit!
