Digital Booklet
Total Playing Time    79:47
Over the past several decades, Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi has become inseparable musically from Antonio Vivaldi. This album offers further proof of the astonishing imaginative powers of Vivaldi as a composer of violin concertos, matched here by Biondi’s own dynamic and cultured virtuosity. With these Farewell Concertos Biondi, leading Europa Galante, turns to works written by a Vivaldi very near the end of his life. Biondi’s selection of concertos provides him full scope to portray the vivid and masterfully conceived imagery, the compendium of violin techniques and the opportunities for improvisation implicit in Vivaldi’s maturity.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
