Founded in Italy by the dazzlingly epicurean Andrea Marcon in 1997, the Venice Baroque Orchestra is now recognized as the world’s most adventurous and dramatic period instrument ensemble, known for ravishing performances of classic scores. Supported by the “charismatic, high-voltage virtuoso” Carmignola on violin (Washington Post), the group strips the varnish off Vivaldi to recover the music’s original vitality.

PROGRAM:
VIVALDI: Sinfonia in A Major for strings and continuo, RV. 158
GALUPPI: Concerto in G Minor for strings and continuo
ALBINONI: Concerto in G Major for strings and continuo, Op. 7, No. 4
TARTINI: Concerto in A Major for violin, strings, and continuo, D 96
VIVALDI: Concerto in E-flat Major for violin, strings, and continuo, RV. 253, “La tempesta di Mare”
VIVALDI: Concerto in G Minor for violin, strings, and continuo, RV. 332
VIVALDI: Concerto in D Major for violin, strings, and continuo, RV. 210

 

“Andrea Marcon…leads the ensemble in vivid, nearly reckless performances, tearing the powdered wig off this music once and for all…what is revealed is breathtaking.”
Washington Post
