The Box Set includes:
• 80-page booklet with graphic comments and insights
• Autographed letter from conductor Ottavio Dantone
Accademia Bizantina and Ottavio Dantone further their exploration into the form of the Concerto Grosso: this time the focus is on Arcangelo Corelli, father and paragon of this musical genre, with a new complete recording of his Concerti Grossi Op. 6.
The boxed set features 2 CDs and an 80-page booklet, in Italian and English, that provides a historical and stylistic framework for the concertos and their new interpretation.
The twelve concertos that make up the collection portray a full range of emotions, transporting the listener into a timeless dimension.The uniqueness of this reading by Ottavio Dantone, Alessandro Tampieri and Accademia Bizantina lies precisely in its fluctuating through the centuries, proving that the past can be found in the present. The poetics and the emotional narrative of this music are a “mysterious form of time” that spans history without losing its power and intensity.
“Corelli is our history, he taught us to speak through music. Our language is rooted in his notes. This record is a journey in which memories, feelings and emotions resurface, guiding us through endless, otherworldly paths” (O. Dantone)
