LISTENING TO THE VIVALDI EDITION
Newcomers to the Vivaldi Edition recording project are often at a loss when confronted with the baffling choice of more than 70 CDs. To make this easier for new listeners, we offer here a list of suggestions with which to begin.
All titles are available on major streaming platforms (Spotify, Deezer, APPLE MUSIC, QOBUZ, etc.)
We highly recommend Qobuz which offers high definition audio and includes the booklets for most of the Vivaldi Editions.
Physical cds can be purchased from PRESTO CLASSICAL, NAXOS DIRECT and AMAZON, though some early recordings are no longer available.
Please note that today’s streaming platforms are unable to cope with generic titles such as the “Vivaldi Edition”. To find cds from this collection it is necessary to search under each individual cd’s title or the name of the orchestra, director or soloist.
