Boris Begelman takes center stage with Rinaldo Alessandrini’s Concerto Italiano in a collection of violin concertos from the Naïve label’s Vivaldi Edition. Begelman – who is concertmaster of Concerto Italiano and who has performed in previous recordings as a member of the ensemble – here lends his “engaging and conversational” playing (The Strad) to Vivaldi’s eminently virtuosic, animated, and improvisatory late concertos. The release marks the 67th recording in Naïve’s series committed to rediscovered manuscripts of Vivaldi’s works housed at the Biblioteca Nazionale in Turin.
