Les Dissonances

For the past five years, David Grimal has organised a benefit concert for the homeless, and all proceeds from this disc will be donated to the association The Margéniaux. This programme is therefore chosen for a wider audience: the famous Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, are associated with the Four Seasons of Buenos Aires by Astor Piazzolla.

An ambitious challenge for the young Aparte label, contributing to a cause dear to David Grimal's heart.

Concerto for Strings in D minor RV 129 'Madrigalesco'

Concerto for strings No. 5, RV 114


Il Tempio Armonico: Davide Monti (solo violin), Alberto Rasi (cello, director) & Maria Christina Cleary (arpa doppia)

Stradivarius is very proud to present Antonio Vivaldi’s masterpiece in a new recording. Il Tempio Armonico rediscovers the deepest essence of The Four Seasons with a performance based on the original manuscripts and carried out 'a parti reali', with arpa doppia and harpsichord as continuo. The outcome is a performance that succeeds in giving back the original freshness, charm and grace of Vivaldi’s masterpiece.

The CD is enriched by two other Concertos by Antonio Vivaldi: Concerto Madrigalesco RV129 and Concerto in C major RV114.

Since its foundation in 1999, Il Tempio Armonico, led by Alberto Rasi, aims for authenticity in performance practice and to re-create music's original appeal and vitality. The musicians of the ensemble are enriched by playing with numerous world-renowned groups and soloists including T. Koopman, J. Savall, M. Huggett and G. Carmignola.

Sejong

Praised by Gramophone magazine as “an invigorating account of the Seasons” when first released on 24-bit 88.2 kHz Stereo and Surround Recordings Naxos CD 8557920, Vivaldi’s universally popular Four Seasons, with their virtuoso part for solo violinist, depict the changing seasons in a pastoral landscape with dazzling variety. Violinist Cho-Liang Lin, who has been compared with Gidon Kremer, Nigel Kennedy and Kyung-Wha Chung, and the virtuoso ensemble Sejong give ‘a durable and unmannered, yet bracing and continuously interesting version’ (Fanfare) of these immortal classics.

Daniel Rowland (violin)

Stellenbosch University Camerata

Winner of MTN South African Music Award 2010 in the category of Best Popular Classical Album.

“Daniel Rowland and the Stellenbosch University Camerata have been performing this spicy cocktail of eight seasons since the ensemble was formed in 2008. Piazzolla’s Four Seasons, originally written for a small band with the composer himself paying bandoneon and here performed in one of a number of subsequent arrangements for string ensemble, consists of four portraits of Buenos Aires, urban counterparts to Vivaldi’s portraits of rural life. Rowland and his players tackle them in a suitable frenzy of heat and colour, the quotations from Vivaldi peeking cheekily out from the potent mix of vibrant rhythms, complete with percussion, and the welter of glissandos and ponticello effects.

The Vivaldi, too, is vividly performed. In the fast movements, and they are fast, tuttis are clipped and dry. The performance conforms to the current approach to historically informed interpretation, with modern players on modern instruments taking what they will from their period colleagues.” The Strad, Feb 2011

Jonathan Morton (violin)

Scottish Ensemble

A unique disc from one of Scotland’s most dynamic and versatile groups: the Scottish ensemble is a tightknit band of outstanding string players from around Europe who perform regularly together under Artistic Director, Jonathan Morton. This disc, one of their first solo releases following acclaimed discs with artists such as Alison Balsom and Toby Spence, contrasts Vivaldi’s timeless Four Seasons with Piazzolla’s tango inspired The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires.

“The playing standard is excellent, with the strings of the Scottish Ensemble finding a light and suitably transparent texture in the Vivaldi, matched by bright, stylish solos from Jonathan Morton...if [Kremer]s Vivaldi is not particularly "Baroque" in sound, many will appreciate its richer string tone and personality.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2011

'Andrew Parrott's interpretation of these concertos is an imaginative one & ....effective. John Holloway is the solo violinist in each work and he gives stylish performances.’ Gramophone

‘Manze’s feeling for detail, his lightly articulated bowing, in a word his sensibility, bring out the charm of Vivaldi’s music; and in this set, with its many affecting slow movements......... the charm is considerable’ Gramophone
