Vivaldi is greatly over-rated - a dull fellow who would compose the same form over many times. Such is the opinion of one of the great composers on the music of another great composer. Given the evidence of the present newly re-released complete Vivaldi cello concertos incredulity can be the only response to this assessment. But then Stravinsky was a man who voiced strong, often acerbic and sometimes outrageous opinions on virtually anything suggested to him. He had probably heard few, if any, of these cello concertos and irrespective would it have made any difference?

The Swedish recorder virtuoso Dan Laurin has demonstrated his remarkable versatility on some thirty recordings on BIS, ranging from a nine-disc set with 17th-century composer Jacob van Eyck's complete Der Fluyten Lust-hof to the recent Rock that Flute, with music for recorder and strings written in 2013 by the Dutch composer Chiel Meijering. During a recording career that stretches over almost 30 years, Laurin keeps returning to one particular set of works, however: the concertos by Antonio Vivaldi.

When back in 2003 Rachel Podger’s recording of Vivaldi’s 12 violin concertos Op.4 ‘La Stravaganza’ Vivaldi: La Stravaganza – Podger/Arte Dei Suonatori was released it was universally acclaimed & quickly went on to garner numerous awards from many sections of the music press including Gramophone, Stereophile & The Absolute Sound as well as winning a Diapason d’Or. It is also interesting to note that even on more than 100 people have recommended that recording. In the intervening years Rachel Podger has widened her recorded repertoire to make further highly regarded recordings of works by Bach, Haydn & Mozart, but she has now made a triumphant return to Vivaldi with this wonderful set of the composer’s 12 Violin Concertos Op.9 known as ‘La Cetra’ .

The genius of a composer like Vivaldi can most readily be discerned and analyzed by establishing a certain physiology of music. Stravinsky's opinion that Vivaldi wrote the same concerto 150 times expressed an erroneous point of view: I would say that Vivaldi wrote a single Concerto that began with his first work and ended the day he laid his pen down for the last time. This single, uninterrupted Concerto was the Concerto of Life. Indeed, the distinctive characteristic of this music lies in the fact that it is in no way an intellectual speculation but rather a spirited description, an "impassioned shorthand" to use Edmond de Goncourt's phrase, a dynamic dissipation, a sort of unbroken conversation or gesture solely motivated by what might be called the joy of being. –Jean Guillou - Translated by Wyley L. Powell

With the sheer glut of recordings of Antonio Vivaldi's Four Seasons on the market, it takes some special approach to make yet another recording of this chestnut seem interesting and palatable. Because Sigiswald Kuijken and his cohorts, La Petite Bande, understand this enormous problem, they have resorted to two innovative ideas: first, to perform the four concertos in a streamlined chamber version that requires only three violins, viola, cello, and harpsichord; and second, to introduce the antique violoncello da spalla (shoulder cello) in their performances, mostly for the novelty of its reedy tone and for its possible historical usage in these particular pieces. Included on this 2007 release from Accent are also the Cello Concerto in D major, RV 403, and the Trio Sonata in D minor, "La Follia," RV 63, which frame the program neatly and give the listener something extra to consider in choosing this CD over others. –Blair Sanderson

Medieval Baebes and other far greater shocks to the bourgeoisie have come along. Wild adventures placed under the rubric of performances of Vivaldi's Four Seasons are commonplace. Yet Nigel Kennedy continues to roost atop the classical sales charts in Europe, and even to command a decent following in the U.S. despite a low American tolerance for British eccentricity. How does he do it? He has kept reinventing himself successfully. Perhaps he's the classical world's version of Madonna: he's possessed of both unerring commercial instincts and with enough of a sense of style to be able to dress them up as forms of rebellion. Inner Thoughts is a collection of slow movements – inner movements of famous concertos from Bach and Vivaldi to Brahms, Bruch, and Elgar. Actually, the only composer falling into the middle of that large chronological gap is Mendelssohn; Kennedy apparently needs a sort of otherworldly serenity for this project, which Baroque and post-Romantic slow movements may have, but Mozart does not. At any rate, this is no radical idea; it's a softball straight up the middle.
