About

Contents:
CD 1: LE QUATTRO STAGIONI

Coupled with Jean-Féry Rebel: Les Eléments
A Four Seasons on autopilot from these period instrument players was never going to happen and the result is thrillingly visceral. Seiler hasn't set out merely to stand apart from the crowd...she and the Berliners have simply insisted on taking nothing for granted...the sheer flair of this new release dazzles as much as it delights.” - BBC Music Magazine, May 2010 ****

CD 2: CELLO CONCERTOS
Caldara: Sinfonia No.6 'Sam Elena al Calvario', Sinfonia No.12 'La Passione di Gesu Signor nostro'
Vivaldi: Concerto for strings No.5, RV 114, Concerto for cello, bassoon, strings & continuo RV409
Vivaldi: Cello Concertos RV412, 416, 419, 424, RV565, Sinfonia in C RV709
Jean-Guihen Queyras (cello), Christian Beuse (bassoon)
Queyras’s handling of Vivaldi’s dazzling streams in the faster movements is brilliant and precise, despite extreme tempos, and he is eloquently expressive in the beautifully phrased slower music. In two effervescent and sophisticated concertos for two violins and cello (RV 415 and RV 565), his partners, Georg Kallweit and Elfa Run Kristinsdottir, are equally good.” - Sunday Times, 9th October 2011

CD 3: VENICE - THE GOLDEN AGE
Solo Concertos & Concerti grossi by Vivaldi, Marcello, Porta, Tessarini, Uri Rom
Xenia Löffler (baroque oboe)
BBC Music Magazine Concerto Choice - December 2014
It is always a pleasure to hear the Akademie fur Alte Musik Berlin, whatever they play...the third 'theme' of the disc is undoubtedly the superb oboe-playing of Xenia Loffler...masterly playing and this disc is her triumph.” - Gramophone Magazine, October 2014
