Harrogate International Festivals is proud to present La Serenissima as part of the 50th Harrogate Festival.
Seasons is one of the most popular pieces of music of all time, beloved by film-makers and a staple at weddings. Antonio Lucio Vivaldi was one of the greatest Baroque composers, second perhaps only to Johann Sebastian Bach, who himself was deeply influenced by Vivaldi’s work.
Award-winning ensemble and leading exponents of Vivaldi’s music, La Serenissima presents the celebrated Four Seasons using a new edition from manuscripts in the hand of Vivaldi’s father, Giovanni Battista. Plus the medieval violino in tromba marina has been recreated from evidence surviving in the archives of the Ospedale della Pietà (a convent, orphanage and school in Venice where Vivaldi worked during his lifetime) to present several of Vivaldi’s Concertos for this unique instrument. This will be a truly rare, and beautiful, concert experience.
