Conversations Among Friends
The Vivaldi Project explores some of the different ways that 18th-century composers sought to incorporate the important Art of Conversation into their compositions---the dialogue between individual musical voices as well as between the musicians and the audience. The program features two great programmatic works, François Couperin's L’apothéose de Corelli and C.P.E. Bach's dialogue between a cheerful and melancholy man, Sanguineus und Melancholicus. Also on the program, a trio sonata by Corelli and Antonio Caldara's cello Concerto per Camera in D minor. Created for the North Carolina HIP Festival 2018. 5-6 players
Music of The Venetian Baroque
This program was created by The Vivaldi Project for the opening concert of The National Gallery of Art's exhibit Venice: Canaletto and His Rivals, featuring works by some of Venice's most illustrious resident and visiting composers including: Castello, Legrenzi, Gabrielli, Caldara, Scarlatti, Handel, and Vivaldi. 5 players
The French Italian Connection
Created for the Washington Early Music Festival, The Vivaldi Project explores the distinction and convergence between the Italian and French schools of violin playing. Quintessentially French composers Lully and Campra share the program with Vivaldi and the Italian and French trained Georg Muffat. Late baroque symphonies by Louis Aubert and Louis-Gabriel Guillemain conclude the program, revealing the increasing French cultivation of "Le Goût italien." 7-10 players
