From two Italian Baroque masters come these two great concerti, perfect showcases for the violinist. Vivaldi’s ‘La Tempesta di Mare’ is a vivid portrait of a great storm, and remains one of the greatest concerti (along with ‘The Four Seasons’) from his classic 'Il cimento dell' armonia e dell'inventione' ('The Contest between Harmony and Invention') which illustrated the battle between structured form and harmony, and the opposing forces of creative invention. Albinoni’s wonderful A-major concerto is a beautiful evocation of the Italian Baroque. Not to be missed!
The Soloist is accompanied by an orchestra.
