A world turned upside down. Vivaldi’s concertos for multiple instruments are true precursors of the symphony in their amplitude and audacity. In these pieces, the “Red Priest,” a creator of boundless imagination, amused himself by devising literally unheard-of combinations of timbres. In the famous concerto Il Mondo al rovescio (The world upside down), he includes flutes, oboes, and harpsichord to double violin and cello in a colorful whirlwind of sound. This recording by Amandine Beyer and Gli Incogniti provides an opportunity to discover these incredibly modern compositions.
