Venice Baroque Orchestra
The exuberant virtuosity of Italian Baroque music is showcased in this program with mandolin star Avi Avital and the scintillating Venice Baroque Orchestra. Vivaldi’s brilliant string writing is the heart of his energetic sinfonias and beloved “Summer” from The Four Seasons. The Venetian master also wrote dazzling music for other instruments, including lute, recorder, and mandolin. These works and melodic delights by Marcello, Geminiani, and Paisiello are also featured.
