This is one of the most important release in the new ARTS "blue stripe" series, recorded with the technique 24bit / 96 kHz. The complete concertos op.8 "Il Cimento dell’Armonia e dell’Invenzione" are the most famous collection of Italian concertos, including "The Four Seasons". ARTS is proud to offer these Vivaldi’s masterpieces in a new and exciting interpretation by one of the leading Italian ensemble performing on original instruments. A refreshing, brilliant and virtuoso performance which shows some of the best Italian soloists, such as the violinist Stefano Montanari, the oboist Paolo Grazzi and the harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone, who also conducts the worldwide renowned ensemble Accademia Bizantina.

ARTS signed a long term agreement with this ensemble who recorded in the past years with BMG and Denon. The next recording will be devoted to unpublished and unrecorded Concertos by Alessandro Scarlatti.

This new recording of The Four Seasons and of all other famous concertos of Op.8, is characterized by the utilisation of a large and varied continuo and by the energetic, fanciful and innovating interpretation which follows the new critical edition of Vivaldi’s works.

This is with no doubt the edition of The Four Seasons and of the Concertos op.8 for the new millennium!- an edition of all Concertos op.8 that you cannot miss!
