Antonio Vivaldi: Venetian Dreams

$ 14.99

This recording features Vivaldi's six immensely entertaining recorder concerti, Op. 10, in performances of stunning panache and virtuosity. Praised by the Los Angeles Times for their "astonishingly vital music-making", the New York-based Baroque ensemble REBEL (pronounced "Reh-BEL") has earned an impressive international reputation. Matthias Maute, a native of Germany, is widely regarded as one of the finest recorder and traverso players of his generation. Since winning First Prize in the renowned Early Music Competition in Bruges, Belgium in 1990, his illustrious career has taken him far and wide. Maute and REBEL can also be heard on these BRIDGE discs: VIVALDI: "Shades of Red" (BRIDGE 9173); BIBER: Harmonia Artificioso-Ariosa I-VI (BRIDGE 9213).



“Wow! Spunky baroque playing, dazzling speed, brilliant clarity, ornaments that create individual touches in familiar passages, and the sound is excellent. Less fattening than Dairy Queen. Treat yourself!” - American Record Guide

“There is astonishing technical virtuosity here and a thoroughly invigorating realization of Vivaldi’s music at its most vividly pictorial. There’s never a dull moment here.” - International Record Review
