ABOUT THE RECORDING
Mysliveček’s talent for composing violin concertos consisted mainly in his ability to write virtuoso passages that are not “empty”, as was often the case with less talented composers. Mysliveček deals with solo passages in a much more interesting way and the listener cannot help but marvel at his seemingly inexhaustible invention. His music never lacks wit and he is always able to surprise and delight the listener’s ear. Methods taken from Vivaldi’s style and from the Baroque period represent only one of the many sources that Mysliveček used in his violin concertos in order to achieve an exceptionally diverse musical expression.
