The Venetian priest and composer Antonio Lucio Maria Vivaldi (1678–1741) is best known for his Four Seasons, but those four concerti have overshadowed the rest of his prodigious output. Did you know, for example, that Vivaldi wrote 230 concerti for violin, 39 for bassoon, and also concerti for chalumeaus (early clarinets), recorders, oboes, mandolins, lutes, violas da gamba, violas d’amore, and some 46 operas?
In this concert we present some of the other works that deserve more airtime – concerti for cello, for oboe, for violin, for lute, and a trio sonata!
Admission free, but please register. Priority seating will be given to those who have registered on Eventbrite, and walk-ins will be seated at 7:45 p.m., so please come early as we cannot guarantee seats for latecomers. There will be no intermission.
This concert is not sponsored, so your generous donation will go toward the rental of performance and rehearsal venues, as well as honoraria for our musicians (some of which have come from abroad for this).
HEADS UP: Esplanade has a new children's festival from the 10 to 14 March. Book your tickets before they sell out.
