Venice Baroque Orchestra
Andrea Marcon, conductor/harpsichord
"A suberbly polished period-instrument group known for its fresh, zesty Vivaldi recordings" (The New York Times), the Venice Baroque Orchestra makes a welcome return to Spivey Hall with lively Italian concertos for single and multiple intruments by Vivaldi, Albinoni, Geminiani, and Veracini, featuring harpsichord, string, and wind soloists.
With the VBO’s "playing of percolating energy and lithe, silvery tone" (The Washington Post), "not one note sounds dutiful; joy and a sense of discovery are everywhere" (The Times, London).
