This new album from Modo Antiquo contains three World premieres; the Sonata in G major RV 820, one of Vivaldi earliest known works, the Concerto in A minor RV 522a, and the Sonata in A minor RV Anh. 107a. The album also features four early compositions of Vivaldi that are very rare in recorded form. The result is something really unique and precious - on this recording we can hear ‘Vivaldi before Vivaldi’: a Vivaldi who has not yet reached what we recognize as his signature style. The ensemble Modo Antiquo, playing on period instruments, gives a brilliant philological interpretation of Vivaldi’s music. It stands as the only Baroque ensemble to receive two nominations for the Grammy Awards in 1997 (Concerti con molti Istromenti by Vivaldi) and in 2000 (Concerti grossi op. VI by Corelli). Liner notes written by Michael Talbot, the most prestigious scholar of Vivaldi’s music in the World. Founded by Federico Maria Sardelli in 1987, the Baroque Orchestra Modo Antiquo brings together musicians sharing instrumental virtuosity and in-depth knowledge of languages and historical performance styles. Modo Antiquo is characterized by a solid but philological interpretation, aware but far from contemporary sensational fashions. Performing in the most important Festivals and theatres all over the world, its discography counts more than forty titles including many world premiere recordings, published by Naïve, Deutsche Grammophon, Brilliant, Tactus. It stands as the only Baroque ensemble to receive two nominations for the Grammy Awards in 1997 (Concerti con molti Istromenti by Vivaldi) and in 2000 (Concerti grossi op. VI by Corelli). It is protagonist in the renaissance of Vivaldi operas, with premiere recordings and staging of the following operas: Arsilda, Tito Manlio, Orlando Furioso RV 728, Orlando Furioso RV 819, Atenaide, Motezuma, Tigrane.

BBC Music Magazine

*****

“the programme as a whole throws fascinating light on where Vivaldi comes from. Corelli's influence is sometimes strong…[and] elsewhere we find the composer forward-looking as in the A minor Concerto for two violins…Federico Maria Sardelli has done splendid editorial work on rehabilitating much of the music, and the playing of Modo Antiquo fully endorses his painstaking spadework”

Sunday Times

3rd January 2016

“Modo Antiquo’s playing tickles and caresses the ear.”

The Guardian

****

“Modo Antiquo play with exquisite precision and rhythmic verve, drawing all soloists from their highly talented ranks. And special praise for Simone Vallerotonda, whose baroque guitar and theorbo playing keeps everything purring along nicely.”
