Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)
Concertos for two Violins, Strings and Continuo

This new CD by Fabrizio Ammetto, director of “L’Orfeo Ensemble” from Spoleto, includes seven concertos for two violins and orchestra by Antonio Vivaldi, most of which are recorded here for the first time. The performance attempts to give an idea of the richness of the tone colour sought by Vivaldi for the performance of these concerts, compositions that deserve to be known on account of their considerable artistic merits. The CD is the result of a long research work carried out by Fabrizio Ammetto, Vivaldi’s specialist and member of the international Editorial Committee of the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi (Fondazione Giorgio Cini) in Venice. The English translation of the booklet is by Michael Talbot, the greatest expert on Vivaldi in the world.
