Notes and Editorial Reviews

With this new recording, the madly epic and romantic opera, Il Giustino, finally receives its place in the spotlight, something that the history of music has denied it up until now. The fifty-eighth recording and eighteenth opera in the Vivaldi Edition, which began in 2000, solidifies the status of Vivaldi as the greatest of opera composers - and of composers full stop. It needed the talent, charisma and poetic energy of a great conductor to bring back to life this gem, and it is Ottavio Dantone who assumes this mantle. With an Accademia Bizantina even more virtuosic and passionate than ever, a cast of high-flying soloists (Emöke Baräth, Delphine Galou, Veronica Cangemi, Emiliano Gonzalez Toro, Silke Gaeng…) and instruments as Read more rare as they are precious (such as the dreamlike psaltery that accompanies the breathtaking air by Anastasio), Maestro Dantone brilliantly reincarnates, through this legendary Giustino, the human passions of yesterday and today.
