Concerti per violino V ‘Per Pisendel’

Dmitry Sinkovsky, violin and conducting

Dmitry Sinkovsky pays tribute to the German violinist Johann Georg Pisendel, member of the Dresden orchestra, that spent a long time in Venice in 1716-1717. Vivaldi and Pisendel became very close friends and the Prete Rosso composed several works for Pisendel. This series of 7 concertos is an overview of the complete art of Vivaldi as a composer and violinist: large scale of music, invention, expression, energy, power of evocation, considerable virtuosity.
