Works by Antonio Vivaldi by definition fall within the repertoire of an Ancient music ensemble such as Pandolfis Consort, which specializes in Renaissance and Baroque music. The fact that the orchestra, founded in 2004 by violist Elzbieta Sajka-Bachler, is now releasing a second album of motets and instrumental concertos by the Grand Master from Venice within just two years testifies on one hand to Vivaldi’s rich oeuvre, but on the other hand to how much Vivaldi’s compositional art is close to the hearts of the musicians. The result is once again an extremely varied program, in which the motets In furore iustissimae irae RV 626, O qui coeli terraeque serenitas RV 631, Ostro picta, armata spina RV 642 / Introduzzione al Gloria, RV 589 as well as the eponymous Nulla in mundo pax sincera RV 630 – each for soprano (Aleksandra Zamojska), strings and basso continuo are interwoven with the Concerto for Cello (Michal Stahel) in D minor, RV 405 as well as the Concertos for Strings and b. c. RV 157 and RV 119.
