About This Event

Pre-concert Chat 7:15pm

“Thrilling to hear and watch,” (The Times) Benedetti and the Venice Baroque Orchestra perform Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons and works by Galuppi, Avison, and Geminiani. Born in Scotland of Italian heritage, Nicola Benedetti was the winner of Best Female Artist at the 2013 Classical BRIT Awards. Her passion for Italian Baroque music and historical performance is heard in her collaboration with the Venice Baroque Orchestra. Founded by Baroque scholar and harpsichordist Andrea Marcon, the Venice Baroque Orchestra is committed to the rediscovery of 17th- and 18th-century masterpieces.
