Rachel Podger (violin), Holland Baroque Society

Composed by: VIVALDI La Cetra

Gramophone Editor's Choice - August 2012
Since the release of her spectacular set of Vivaldi's La Stravaganza concertos back in 2003, Rachel Podger's recording agenda has been focused on music by Mozart and Bach. This release of the La Cetra concertos marks her very welcome return to music by Venetian maestro, a composer with whom the violinist has a clear affinity. As with La Stravaganza, there are many jewels in this set, some of which place even higher technical demands on the soloist. Several of the concertos also include fascinating and exotic experimental effects. Podger is supported here by the young and energetic Holland Baroque Society, whose innovative performance style and keen scholarship makes them a perfect partner in this repertoire. Bringing together some of Vivaldi's best music, played by some of the world's finest performers, this Channel Classics disc offers listeners a joyful, energetic and inspiring musical experience.
