This series of CDs by Tactus and Modo Antiquo represents the first complete recording of the cantatas of Antonio Vivaldi.
Up until now, these works have appeared only sporadically on record, yet they constitute quite an important body of works in Vivaldi’s total production. Dedicated exclusively to female voices, the cantatas have here been divided according to the classifications used in the Ryom catalogue: cantatas for soprano and continuo, cantatas for contralto and continuo, cantatas for soprano and instruments, cantatas for contralto and instruments.
Modo Antiquo has approached this first complete recording of the cantatas by Vivaldi with full respect for the original texts and the performance practices of the period.
Modo Antiquo has based these performances on original manuscripts, while at times consulting the critical edition of the cantatas, recently completed by the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi. For the purpose of providing the richest and most multifaceted image of the diverse compositions, the cantatas have been entrusted to different soloists, each of whom appear on a different recording in the series.
