Wedensday, June 7, 2006 at 7:30pm: Vivaldi Victorious (Adult Concert Series)
Lauded as the leading violin virtuoso of his time! Lionized for two decades as Venice's greatest opera composer! Extolled as the father of the instrumental concerto! Concerts he conducted were attended by European royalty as well as gondoliers and tradesmen. Suddenly his star waned and his works lay dormant for 200 years. But like a phoenix rising from the ashes, Antonio Vivaldi today is celebrated as one of the world's greatest composers by performers and audience alike-a victory for the Red Priest. Fifteen years of Vivaldi's Venice by The Little Orchestra Society confirms the composer's allure to his public adulators. His compositions never fail to enchant, entertain or provide aural pleasure and his music remains the ultimate spokesman of the Venetian Baroque. Come, join Maestro Anagnost and The Little Orchestra Society for another thrilling evening of music by Vivaldi Victorious!
