About

The complete set of 12 Violin Sonatas Op.  by Antonio Vivaldi.

Vivaldi published this Opus in 1709 in Venice, and in 1712 again in Amsterdam with Roger, who was to become his main publisher.

Vivaldi was a notable violin virtuoso himself - no wonder these sonatas demand a high technical level of the performer.

Italian violinist Federico Guglielmo counts as one of the greatest Baroque violinists of today. Not only does he effortlessly conquer all technical difficulties, but he also fully understands the musical language of this music - the rhetoric, the articulations and the affects. In short, he not only plays the right notes, but he lets the violin speak, as a medium for all human emotions.

This set is part of the Vivaldi Series by L’Arte dell’Arco and Federico Guglielmo, presenting new recordings of the complete Op.1 to Op.10 by the Venetian Master.

Excellent liner notes by the artist.
