About

The astonishing imaginative powers of Vivaldi as a composer of violin concertos receive perfect attention from the inspired soloist Vadym Makarenko and Infermi d’Amore in this album, which includes four premiere recordings. These brilliant performances provide an opportunity to discover Vivaldi’s ability to take his concertos’ virtuosic idiom into the realms of theatrical description and drama. This outstanding recording also includes the Venetian master’s Concerto for Violoncello RV 788, the Two Violins Concerto RV 521 and the Sinfonia RV 786, as well as Veracini’s Ouverture No. 6 and Marcello’s  Violin Concerto op. 1 no. 9.
