Violin Concertos, Vol. 8 – ‘Il teatro’: RV 187, 217, 235, 321, 366 & 387 (Per Signora Anna Maria) Julien Chauvin (violin); Le Concert de la Loge Naïve OP 30585 62:11 mins
'Altogether, this is glorious music-making. Hearty thanks to Chauvin and his musicians. French violinist Julien Chauvin and the period instrument ensemble Concert de la Loge, which he founded, explore the myriad subtleties and gestures of the music with infectious vitality. They enliven Vivaldi’s thrilling tonal landscape at every turn with intuitive and spontaneous responses to the music’s often mercurial character.'
