Notes and Editorial Reviews
Through the poetry, the refinement, the virtuosity and nature of his style, Vivaldi knows how to stimulate imagination, and make audiences ecstatic. 18th century Italy was the theater of musical competitions between Roma, Venice or Napoli, Corelli, Vivaldi or Porpora...With the Estro Armonico, Vivaldi imposes a view of the concerto form where soloists express themselves individually or in front of the orchestra and captivates by his art: virtuosity of trance, narrative writing...and a simplicity which is related to popular music.
