About the album

Traditionally known as the composer of the Four Seasons and the Gloria, the work of Cecilia Bartoli has shown that lesser-known works of the red priest from Venice can become hit records too.

Now we are delighted to introduce a two disc set on period instruments of the 12 Violin Sonatas, Opus 2. Cordaria features internationally-renowned baroque violinist Walter Reiter, "an artist who transcends authenticity to enter the universal" as one critic wrote, and an eminent continuo team of harpsichord, cello and theorbo.

Written in 1708, just before the 'L'estro armonico' concertos, these sonatas contain all the passion and the virtuosity, all the lyricism and emotion, which have made the concertos so eternally popular. In the words of the great Vivaldi scholar Michael Talbot, "Op. 2 is fully Vivaldian and certainly deserves to take its place among his other masterworks."

Sonates van Vivaldi die het verdienen om meesterwerken te worden
Antonio Vivaldi is alom bekend als de componist van de Vier Jaargetijden en het Gloria, maar het werk van mezzosopraan Cecilia Bartoli heeft aangetoond dat de minder bekende werken van de rode priester van Venetië ook net zulke populariteit verdienen.

Barokensemble Cordaria presenteert met genoegen dit dubbelalbum met Vivaldi’s 12 Sonates voor viool Opus 2, uitgevoerd op historische instrumenten. Cordaria bevat een toonaangevend continuo van klavecimbel, cello en theorbe, en de internationaal vermaarde barokviolist Walter Reiter, die door de critici beschreven wordt als “an artist who transcends authenticity to enter the universal.”

De sonates werden gecomponeerd in 1708, vlak voor de concerten uit de collectie L’estro armonico, en bevatten alle passie, virtuositeit, lyrisme en emotie die de concerten zo populair maakten. Het zijn vroege werken, die niet te vergelijken zijn met de Vier Jaargetijden. De muzikale taal is echter typerend voor Vivaldi, en de sonates verschillen sterk van die van zijn tijdgenoten. In de woorden van de grote Vivaldiwetenschapper Michael Talbot: “Op. 2 is fully Vivaldian and certainly deserves to take its place among his other masterworks.”
