Cadenzas by Andreas Staier

Isabelle Faust, Il Giardino Armonico, Giovanni Antonini

“These wonderful performances have the air of chamber music, of close listening between soloist, band and director. Faust isn’t spotlit ….but seems part of the ensemble, her sound growing out of the corporate entity to glitter, coax, snarl and soar as required – thought-provoking and eminently enjoyable cycle.” Gramophone Award Winner

The five most brilliant concertos for violin, all penned before the age of 19! Mozart was not even 15 years old when he began composing violin concertos that would serve as a backdrop at Salzburg receptions. An insatiable drive for independence would however lead the young Konzertmeister to overtly challenge musical forms, innovate with genres, humour and frivolity, all of which can be heard in this delightful first collaboration between Isabelle Faust and the musicians of Il Giardino Armonico.
