Concert: Venice Baroque Orchestra
March 1, 2018
Fine Arts Center Concert Hall
UMass Amherst Campus
The Venice-based orchestra specializes in vibrant, even daring performances of music by one of its city's native sons, Antonio Vivaldi.
"There’s a wildness in Vivaldi’s music that makes it so exciting, a sense of barely controlled fury in his huge, cascading waves of sound. But there’s also a heart-breaking vulnerability at its core, and the Venice players balanced them to perfection." —Washington Post
