Il Giardino Armonico and violinist Isabelle Faust present a portrait of Pietro Antonio Locatelli, one of the most impressive violin virtuosos of the eighteenth century. Considered today as a sort of Baroque Paganini, he left picturesque, colorful, strikingly modern pieces for his instrument. Following their Mozart collaboration that earned them worldwide acclaim, Faust and Il Giardino Armonico bring out the full narrative intensity of these concertos, worthy of the operatic stage.
