The overwhelming impression left by this mixed Vivaldi programme is of chamber music delightedly shared among friends...
It is safe to say that you have never heard Vivaldi quite like this — reincarnated through the exuberant virtuosity of the young members of the Jupiter Ensemble. Led by “the Eric Clapton of the lute” (BBC Music Magazine) alongside a rising mezzo-soprano who “brings life and beauty to everything she touches” (The New York Times), the group boldly reimagines what an early music ensemble can be as they guide us through the vibrant landscape of Antonio Vivaldi’s baroque innovations. From exhilarating vocal works that dazzle through their stunningly beautiful finesse to fiery concertos for strings that make much of the western canon sound tame in comparison, the program promises to shatter all preconceptions of Vivaldi’s music and reacquaint you with this timeless composer in a completely new light.
