Antonio Lucio Vivaldi, a grandson of Agostino's, was born in Venice on March 4th, 1678. His father, Giambattista, who was requested by Legrenzi to enter the of St. Mark in 1685, taught him to play violin (there is no evidence of other teachers) and was indeed a good teacher for Vivaldi, only at the age of ten, could take his father's place in the orchestra. Vivaldi, after a rapid rise through the minor orders, was ordained on March 23rd, 1703 and was then appointed teacher at the , a girl orphanage in Venice. How Vivaldi could thereafter attain the high level attested by musical history as a composer as well as his success as a teacher, witnessed by the contemporary chronicles, remains a mystery, as it is often the case with such geniuses as he was.

Mathilde von Guise was one of Hummel’s best known operas, partly because the composer actually issued a printed piano score which was published in Leipzig in 1823. It was written for Vienna where it was premiered, in German, at the Kartnertortheater. As was the case with all German lyric drama at the time, it was in the form of a singspiel: with spoken dialogue.

What a treat for any lover of Baroque chamber music, to dip into this boxed set and pull out something to suit your fancy. For fans of Il Giardino Armonico's flamboyant flourishes and exuberant expressiveness, it's like having all your birthdays at once, being presented with this great Warner Classics 11 CD set. My own feeling is that this "free" approach to Baroque music is at its best when applied to the theatrical music of disc 8 or the seventeenth century Italian music on disc 1. The showmanship and playfulness is an absolute joy in many of those pieces. I'm less satisfied with the interpretations of Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, (on discs 10 and 11), which require a different approach, I feel. I like my Bach to be a little more measured and subtle, I suppose. It has no need of the Il Giardino Armonico treatment. On the whole, though, I do love this set and wouldn't be without it. (WAB)

This was Joan Sutherland's second recording of Lucia, made with an all-star cast in prime vocal condition, and it is a must for those who believe that bel canto opera should live up to its descriptive title: "beautiful singing."
In the 10 years since her first Lucia recording, she had settled more comfortably into the character and become even more expert in the music. Her costars are among the greatest singers of our time, a point that is particularly important in the ensemble singing. Maria Callas is more dramatic, and her Lucia is a must for Callas fans, but this set is a joyful celebration of the glory of the human voice. In purely musical terms it is the best-sung Lucia on record. --Joe McLellan

“John Coetzee, the South African writer and Nobel Prize Winner for Literature 2003, first published Waiting for the Barbarians as a novel in 1980.

This highly anticipated recording of Monteverdi's Vespro della Beata Vergine is a new construction by Rinaldo Alessandrini. Alessandrini is one of the world's foremost Monteverdi authorities, and an all-around expert on Baroque music. His 2003 recording of Vivaldi's Vespers garnered a Gramophone Award in 2004. Monteverdi is one of our most important composers, having essentially built the bridge from the Renaissance period to the Baroque. He faced both criticism and fame in his time, as he broke tradition and rule to achieve musical goals that would eventually become the standard. 

Rinaldo Alessandrini's brilliantly realized recording of Monteverdi's Vespers is an intimate, slightly pared down version of the early Baroque masterpiece. Working in the warm acoustic of Rome's Palazzo Farnese, he employs just one singer per part, and eliminates instrumental doublings in the choral movements except where they are expressly indicated. The result is a compact, richly haloed sound that won't ever knock you out of your chair, but which flatters the more intimate solo and duet movements that can sound anemic in grander productions; with the sound gap between the biggest and smallest movements closed, each holds its own within the overall structure of the piece. While Alessandrini deserves credit for his conception and leadership, and especially his insightful treatment of Monteverdi's ever-changing rhythmic flow, it is his group of 12 singers that make the strongest impression. Their cohesive ensemble singing, marked by flawless intonation and richly colored sonorities, has a solidity and emotional resonance worthy of a much bigger group. More importantly, they are unusually interesting soloists, singing with elasticity, expressivity, and tonal warmth without sacrificing exactness. The Concerto Italiano is as good an original instrument ensemble as you're likely to hear anywhere, and its performance here is flawless. The use of fifes, rather than the recorders used in some realizations, adds an appealing color. (by Allen Schrott)
