Vivaldi’s double concertos resemble jousts: there is bound to be comparison between the two protagonists, but in the end the triumph will be collective. And the least one can say is that Amandine Beyer and her illustrious guest Giuliano Carmignola, in his hm debut, have breathed new life into this dazzling form of musical theatre!

Record Review

24th September 2016

“you can hear the way these two stylish and inventive violinists strike sparks from one another, never satisfied to just play the dots, every phrase explored for expressive potential and thrown sometimes challengingly from player to player with the ensemble reacting colourfully around them. It’s the kind of Vivaldi playing that reminds you that these kind of confrontations and conspiracies are an essential part of the music … richly recorded.”

The Guardian

9th October 2016

****

“Are there still revelations to be heard in new Vivaldi concerto recordings? There certainly are in this dazzling, extrovert collection of concertos all for two violins – like a tennis match in music, the two protagonists toss figures, rhythms and phrases across the net with ever-increasing excitement and intensity.”

MusicWeb International

16th November 2016

“Gli Incogniti are another of those extraordinary groups for whom Vivaldi's virtuoso writing holds no terrors...This issue is to be bought immediately by all lovers of the Italian baroque!”

Gramophone Magazine

December 2016

“These are performances that burst with life, and right from the unaccompanied sparring between the soloists at the beginning of the first track...The tone of soloists and orchestra alike is rich and vital, and the recording has the right mix of clarity and bloom.”

BBC Music Magazine

January 2017

*****

“The musical chemistry between Carmignola and Beyer is intuitive and gratifying. Outer movements sparkle with playful vigour while centrally placed solo movements are poetically declaimed...soloists and ripieno alike respond to this wonderful music with passion, insight and a feeling for the idiom that emerges as second nature”
