Notes and Editorial Reviews

"This set, like others in Opus 111's Vivaldi Edition, aims to explore many of the composer's unpublished works housed in the National University Library in Turin. Even without the benefit of a PhD in musicology, however, the average consumer with modest expectations will find much to enjoy in this delightfully played collection...Kuijken and the Academia Montis Regalis play these concertos with the customary vigor and crispness we have come to expect of "period-style" Vivaldi recordings, and you even get excellent intonation and nicely balanced sound along with the bargain...Kuijken captures all the liveliness and bounce throughout each piece, playing with a surprisingly full tone despite the well-known technical challenges Read more imposed by early flutes (replicas or originals). The slow movements serve as exemplars of lovely phrasing and subtlety (check out the third track Largo from the G major concerto, RV 436, and listen to how he masterfully shapes the melody and adds just the right amount of dynamic shading to enliven the whole movement). A first-rate release then, that makes for a pleasant afternoon's musical diversion."
--Michael Liebowitz, ClassicsToday.com

"Vivaldi’s best­known flute concertos are the six which he published in 1728 as his Op 10‚ the first such works ever printed. There are‚ however‚ eight others in manuscript (two of them incomplete)‚ seven of which appear on this disc...if we do not always hear Vivaldi at his most attention­seeking in these works‚ his fingerprints are nevertheless all over them...Barthold Kuijken negotiates these concertos with his usual mix of nonchalance and sweet refinement...The strings of Academia Montis Regalis are enthusiastic accompanists..." - GRAMOPHONE
