MCO at Fed Square: Vivaldi's Violins

Vivaldi's Violins

Please note, this concert takes place at Federation Square.

Details

Featuring violinist Sophie Rowell.

A humble orphanage in Venice became home to a music academy and orchestra famous throughout Europe. Its young musicians were leading virtuosi of the day and feted well beyond Italy. Their leader was Antonio Vivaldi, who composed hundreds of violin concertos for his charges, including some of the most beloved music of the Baroque.

Leading violinist Sophie Rowell joins members of Melbourne Chamber Orchestra for a concert dedicated to some of the most spectacular of these concertos, including concerti for two and four violin soloists and the dazzling concerto Grosso Mogul.

Presented by Melbourne Chamber Orchestra
