Vivaldi: Concerti grossi and Solo concertos for strings
(Sinfonia in D major, RV 125, Doulbe concerto in C major, RV 508 a. o. )
Back before the “Carnevale di Venezia” became a costume spectacle for tourists and was still a volcanic eruption of the joy of life, a small, red-haired priest mixed with the carnival revellers: Don Antonio Vivaldi. Many of his string concertos resonate the unrestrained joie de vivre of the carnival. Florian Deuter and the baroque string players of Harmonie Universelle give a magnificent impression of this masquerade – even without the masks.
