Violin Concerto in E-flat major, op. 8, 'La Tempesta di Mare (book/CD)
- Autore Antonio Vivaldi
Publisher: Music Minus One
From two Italian Baroque masters come these two great concerti, perfect showcases for the violinist. Vivaldi’s ‘La Tempesta di Mare’ is a vivid portrait of a great storm, and remains one of the greatest concerti (along with ‘The Four Seasons’) from his classic 'Il cimento dell' armonia e dell'inventione' ('The Contest between Harmony and Invention') which illustrated the battle between structured form and harmony, and the opposing forces of creative invention. Albinoni’s wonderful A-major concerto is a beautiful evocation of the Italian Baroque. Not to be missed!
Includes a high-quality printed music score and two compact discs with the complete work with soloist in split-channel stereo (soloist on right channel for easy isolation); then a second recording in full stereo of the accompaniments, minus the soloist.
Performed by Michael Metelka, violin
Accompaniment : Czech Symphony Chamber Orchestra
