Virtuosi di Venezia, Venice

#5 of 69 in Nightlife in Venice
The Orchestra Virtuosi di Venezia-Orchestra da camera di San Marco had been formed in 2002 under the inspiration of Vivaldi’s work. The ensemble and the musical formation have both been chosen to recall the exact situation in which Vivaldi worked and reproposes in its concerts the athmosphere and the genio of the Red Priest’ compositions. The Orchestra was born with the intention and the honor of paying tribute to the great composer in the prestigious Ateneo di San Basso, in San Marco square, whose hall has the same dimensions of the Pietà Institue music hall, in which Vivaldi composed.

ANTONIO VIVALDI

Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice on 4th March 1678. Introduced to the study of violin by his father, a violin player at St. Mark's Chapel, he took holy orders, but, owing to his ill health, he celebrated Mass only for a short period and in 1704 he was "Maestro di Violino di Choro " in the La Pietà Institute, an all-girls orphanage. From 1705 he began to compose first a series of sonatas and then his first Opera: “Ottone in Villa” (1713). The following years were a series of productions and satisfactions up to 1725, “Il cimento dell'armonia e dell' invenzione” (Op. N.8), in which the opening concertos “Le Quattro Stagioni”. It had an extraordinary success. Then came the period for Vivaldi to manage the Teatro S. Angelo in Venice, during which he wrote operas and he never stopped traveling with the European royalty. In 1735 he met Carlo Goldoni for the firs time. Vivaldi died in Vienna on July 28th, 1741.

  • Bravo! I like the concert very much! The musicians a re very professional, the whole 1 hour and 10 minutes flied on one breath!!! Grazie molte, amici!  more »
  • Very passionate and virtuoso musicians enthusiastically bring a program of more than an hour. Besides the four seasons of Vivaldi, we got Albinoni and Tartini to hear. Despite the cold evening and the small number of people who were present in the church, the musicians played with verve and we even got a repeat performance. A real gem and a resting point after a day in the hustle and bustle. With our teacher card we got 5 euro discount without having to ask for it ourselves. The man at the counter listed in our demand for the price immediately the possible discounts on. A nice windfall!
