Considered one of the 10 best recordings of the last century

True original master tape used for the first time (unlike previous versions done by the Divox, Cisco and Silk Road labels).

Reviewer Norbert Hornig, for Fonoforum calls this album unsurpassed. " seems to me so far. Giuliano Carmignolas' first recording with the Sonatori de la Gioiosa Marca of 1992. A stroke of genius: Grippingly alive instrumental extremely brilliant, musically transparent and colored to the last corner of the score."

Is it still possible after hundreds, perhaps thousands, of live performances and recordings, add something new, or at least different, very well known to Vivaldi's Four Seasons? Although it may seem surprising, you can still, writes Musica. And it shows this beautiful engraving of Sonatori of Gioiosa Marca, an extraordinary group of Treviso, which also present a recording devoted almost entirely to Violin Concertos, always by Vivaldi, and assembled in the program "the humane passions" because of their titles: The favorite, anxiety, suspicion, The loving and pleasure.

As is evident, this episode belongs to that style of music, "descriptive," so dear to some authors of the past, including Vivaldi. In spite of what he said about Stravinsky, Vivaldi — ie that he would have written the same concerto hundreds of times — it is the richness and variety of timbres and rhythms found to distinguish these songs, while in the identical construction scheme and the same processing structure. The merit of Sonatori Treviso, led by violinist Giuliano Carmignola, lies in their execution by Vivaldi, based on ancient instruments and techniques of contemporary compositions.

"As for the recording, it’s spacious and not at all overtly “digital” in the negative sense. You will hear richer studio recordings but that’s mostly because of the controlled environment. Here you have natural, reflective acoustics. Close your eyes and it is church-like, though utmost clarity and inner detail is well-maintained." - Michael Fremer,, rated 9/10 Music, 8/10 Sound
