Austin Baroque Orchestra

Electrifying, passionate, sensual — these are but a few words that can describe the genius that was 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. One of the most formidable violin virtuosi to ever live, Vivaldi churned out one masterwork after another, composing dazzling concerti for his female students at the Ospedale della Pietà and dramatic works for the opera-hungry Venetian public, not to mention music commissioned by various European royals. Our first all-Vivaldi program will consist of a diverse assortment of his instrumental and vocal output, with concerti featuring talented ABO soloists, overtures from operas, chamber works, and arias from his sacred and operatic œuvre.
