Andrea Marcon led the ensemble in vivid, nearly reckless performances, tearing the powdered wig off this music once and for all … What was revealed was breathtaking” (The Washington Post). There’s more to Vivaldi than The Four Seasons, as will be seen in a program of impassioned arias from the Venetian master’s operas and breathlessly brilliant virtuoso concertos for various instruments.
