Electrifying, passionate, sensual — these are but a few words that can describe the music of Antonio Vivaldi. Known to his contemporaries as il prete rosso (the Red Priest) on account of his red hair, his music has enchanted millions since it found widespread popularity nearly a century ago. Our first all-Vivaldi program will consist of a diverse assortment of his instrumental and vocal output, with concerti featuring talented ABO soloists, overtures, chamber works, as well as arias from his sacred and operatic œuvre.
