Italian Concertos for Single and Multiple Instruments: Music by Vivaldi, Porpora, Geminiani, and Veracini

Founded in 1997 by Baroque scholar and harpsichordist Andrea Marcon, the Venice Baroque Orchestra is “one of the world’s most adventurous and dramatic period instrument ensembles” (NPR). They have toured the globe, thrilling audiences with an electrifying sound full of lively energy and impeccable musicianship. The Venice Baroque Orchestra makes a triumphant return to Boston in a program showcasing Vivaldi concertos that feature dynamic interplay between soloist and ensemble, with additional works by Italian master composers Porpora, Geminiani, and Veracini.
