Vivaldi, Venice, and the Influence of Italy
Part of: Chamber Music Series
The city of Venice was a melting pot of music, art, and culture during the Renaissance and into the Baroque era, nourishing the creativity and careers of composers like Claudio Monteverdi and Antonio Vivaldi. Vivaldi, Venice, & the Influence of Italy, our first Chamber Music Series concert of the season, celebrates the festive city’s influence as a cultural tastemaker with a new instrumental suite using selections from Monteverdi’s groundbreaking opera L’Orfeo, Vivaldi’s trend-setting concertos and sonatas, and Corelli’s hypnotic and inventive Violin Sonata in D Minor “La Folia,” along with lesser-known virtuosic works by Biber and Merula. Learn more about Venice and the composers and works on the program here.
