L’Estro Armonico


Armoniosa is proud to present a new and original version of the 12 Concerti by Antonio Vivaldi that make up the collection of the L’Estro Armonico op. 3. Michele Barchi, starting from the historical transcriptions for keyboards (harpsichord or organ) of these masterpieces made by great contemporary authors of the “Venetian Priest”, including Johann Sebastian Bach, had the intuition to complete the transcription for keyboards of the whole collection of the Estro Armonico, using the Ensemble of Armoniosa (a violin, a cello “piccolo” with 5 strings, a cello, an organ and a harpsichord) to realize the orchestral “Tutti” provided by Vivaldi.


The Goldberg Variations

Michele Barchi

“Dear Goldberg, do play me one of my variations.” According to Forkel, “Bach was perhaps never so well rewarded for any work as this: the Count made him a present of a golden goblet, filled with one hundred Louis d’ors.” One of the most important work of the baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach is shining in this great interpretation. Let’s be captured by the crystal recorded sound of the unique Michele Barchi’s handmade harpsichord.
