Formed of 66 CDs, this box set features a variety of acclaimed performers and contains extensive notes on Vivaldi.

The master of Italian Baroque music is indisputably, Antonio Vivaldi. Throughout his life, he composed hundreds of works and is remembered perhaps second only to J.S. Bach, ranking as one of the most popular composers of all time.

His oeuvre crosses an extraordinarily wide range, from instrumental compositions of all types to sacred cantatas and operatic works, a vast number of which are presented in this comprehensive box set.

Vivaldi was a divisive figure during his lifetime, well known for being vain and conceited. His vanity, though, is certainly deserved. We are left with the overwhelming evidence.

More than 50 operas (21 of which survive), 500 concertos and 90 sonatas are no mean feat for a man, who by all accounts was also a superb teacher and virtuosic violinist.

This release draws attention to the diversity of his oeuvre, starting with his instrumental music and moving on to feature his sacred cantatas and operas.
