David Juritz (violin)

London Mozart Players

Brilliant, unconventional and vain, it was Antonio Vivaldi’s boast that he could compose a complete concerto in less time than it took to copy out the parts.

Ordained as a clergyman, he sported a head of flaming red hair that earned him the sobriquet ‘The red priest’. As a composer and virtuoso violinist he was famed throughout Europe.

Aitor Hevia (solo violin), Theo Bleckmann (vocal) & Uri Caine (piano)

Forma Antiqva, Aarón Zapico

Digital Recording at Auditorio Manuel de Falla (Forma Antiqva), Granada, Spain, July 2011

Digital Recording at Sear Sound (Theo Bleckmann and Uri Caine), NYC, USA, September 2011

Aarón Zapico and his baroque ensemble, Forma Antiqva, interpret Vivaldi’s concertos with an entirely new approach, on period instruments. Aitor Hevia (violin) slips into various leading parts, mimics birds, a farmer’s boy, from who the storm wants to steal the annual harvest, becomes the game being hunted to death and blusters like freezing wind over the frozen land. Vivaldi, who was born during an earthquake, creates four episodes, each in three parts, corresponding with his poems.

Theo Bleckmann and Uri Caine compose these sonnets and present here as a première recording ‘The Four Seasons Sonnets’: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. Bleckmann and Caine act as the narrators for Vivaldi’s AudioFilm. The Dutch painter and concept artist Marcel van Eeden is inspired by Zapico’s ‘Four Seasons’ and creates for this musical cycle eight new drawings.

Trio Sonata, Op. 1 No. 12 for Two Violins & Continuo in D minor, RV 63 'La Follia'


Daniel Sepec (violin & direction)

The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

The Amsterdam edition of 1725 was long the principal source, but the concertos of the Four Seasons have also survived in another form – a handwritten version now known as the Manchester manuscript, since the original is housed in the Henry Watson Music Library, Manchester. This CD is that version, brought to life by the Daniel Sepec and performed on a 1780 baroque violin.

Vivaldi & Cage: 8 Seasons

Vivaldi & Cage: 8 Seasons


Cage:

String Quartet in Four Parts

arr. for baroque orchestra by Frank Agsteribbe

Vivaldi:

The Four Seasons


Rodolfo Richter (harpsichord)

Baroque Orchestra B’Rock

In his String Quartet in Four Parts, Cage aimed for a musical idiom intended for gut strings and wanted no vibrato. This inspired Frank Agsteribbe to arrange the work for Baroque string orchestra and critically acclaimed Belgian ensemble B’Rock has taken up the project.

B’Rock has cleverly combined Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with the Cage, alternating one movement of each on disc 1, with the complete works on disc 2.

“[it] pays off big time, with each movement of the Cage acting as a strange, oneiric pendant or footnote to each concerto in The Four Seasons...generous rhetorical pauses and profuse ornamentation [are] the order of the day. But in the context of Cage's poised stillness, the effect is extraordinary.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2012
