Notes and Editorial Reviews

When Charles de Brosses, a judge and writer from Dijon, goes to Italy in 1739-1740, he hopes to find History of the Roman Republic, a legendary text written by Salluste, in the first century B.C. but lost since antiquity. His collection will not bear fruit, but in the letters he writes to his friends during his voyage, he gives us the most living portrait of the Italy of his time. Curious about everything, he doesn't omit going to Venice and seeing for himself how the ''nation is crazy'' about music: There are hardly no evenings without an academy somewhere; people rush...to listen with as much enthusiasm as if it were the first time. Here, there is a kind of music that does not exist in France...Long concertos without solo violin. Vivaldi Read more became a very close friend, to sell me really expensive concertos. He sort of succeeded, but I also got what I wanted: to listen to him and live such special musical moments. Founded by harpsichordist Vincent Bernhardt, the ensemble Il delirio fantastico is a group of young musicians specialized in Baroque music and in the playing of historical instruments. It consists mainly of former students of the famous European universities and conservatories. Il delirio fantastico explores actively unheard music from the Italian and German baroque repertoire, while approaching as well the classics and particularly the music of Antonio Vivaldi. Read less
