Russian baroque violinist and countertenor Dmitry Sinkovsky has been a fast-rising profile in Europe over the past few years.
For instance, he has been a privileged partner of Joyce di Donato during her on-going Drama Queen worldwide tour, of whom he has thoroughly been conductor and solo violin. Sinkovsky's outstanding virtuosity and wide stateof- mind have systematically deeply impressed the audiences.
Sinkovsky's two contributions to the Vivaldi Edition (Concertos 'per Pisendel' and Double Concertos with Riccardo Minasi), both recorded with Il Pomo d'Oro, were enthusiastically received by the press: Diapason, Gramophone, Fonoforum, Scherzo e.a.
This new interpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, one of the most emblematic musical works ever composed, is definitely a much-awaited event.
Even beyond the technical and musical options chosen by Sinkovsky (some cadenzas and continuos with harps are unforgettable), his will to integrate gorgeous vocal pieces to the recording, the cantata "Cessate, omai Cessate" and the aria "Gelido in ogni vena" from Farnace, give a unique and appealing color to the whole ensemble.
