ArtistsDaniele Orlando (violin)
I Solisti Aquilani
Would the Venetian composer have really appreciated the performances heard over past decades, be they 'authentically baroque' or, provocatively 'rock-baroque'? The Italian violinist Daniele Orlando, accompanied by the Solisti Aquilani, 'read and 'play' the contemporaneity of Vivaldi: here there are no effects without cause, never is there an overbearing taste for gratuitous stupefaction as though saying to the listener, "Listen how gifted I am". Instead it is as though restoring his own stupefaction: "Listen how this music is lively and varied".
This new recording also poses another question: can one, today, given the state of our planet, interpret the Four Seasons as if our environment was not the result of the major wounds that man has inflicted on it, as if this Nature described by Vivaldi was not threatened? The response of Daniele Orlando is to be found in his musical choices that at times appear radical; yet there is always a pre-eminent care for the expressive dramaturgy in his performance.
Lastly, and it is a first, this recording consists of two different mixes of these Four Seasons: a version with natural sound and a second, more contrasted version that will enable the listener to enjoy two different sound environments.
