 Update me on new releases by Biondi

Fabio Biondi (b1961)

Rather in the manner of Viktoria Mullova, Fabio Biondi’s playing displays a remarkable stylistic eclecticism; and it is of some significance that he transcends the boundaries not only of musical genres in his recordings and performances, but also of stylistic approaches. Being an authentic aesthetic chameleon in an age of repertoire plurality is difficult and runs the risk of not doing any of these things completely convincingly. Certainly (and this is no bad thing) Biondi’s playing, whatever the style of performance, is almost unmistakably his, with a certain freedom and rhetorical capriciousness wedded to a conspicuously emotive understanding.

Biondi’s particular interest in period-instrument performance emerged during his teenage years, at a time when this specialist area was burgeoning in Europe and the USA. Since then he has played on a range of instruments each set up appropriately for music of different eras. As well as the more widely-practised field of Baroque performance, he extends his historically-orientated activities through the Classical and Romantic eras to the present day with his Stendhal Quartet, founded in 1981.
