About

After recording Vivaldi's set of Violin Concertos 'La Stravaganza', Op.4, in 2003, Rachel Podger has been immersed in music by Mozart and Bach on disc. But it has now felt right to come back to the Venetian Maestro, whose sense of drama she adores: This time I chose his opus 9, the set of 12 Violin concertos entitled 'La Cetra'. There are plenty of jewels in this set, just as in 'La Stravaganza', with even higher technical demands made on the soloist including many, often exotic experimental effects.

We connected Rachel with the young and energetic Holland Baroque Society whose innovative approach forms the basis for unique concert programmes.

According to both Rachel and HBS, their recording of this Vivaldi set was a joyful, energetic and inspiring experience.
