THE GLORIES OF VENICE

Vivaldi Sinfonia 'Al Santo Sepolcro' in B minor RV 169
Bach Harpsichord Concerto in D, BWV972
(after Vivaldi: Violin Concerto Op. 3 No. 9)
Vivaldi Lute Concerto in D major, RV93
Vivaldi Violin Concerto in D major Il Grosso Mogul, RV208
Vivaldi The Four Seasons

Venetian society in the 17th century was a hotbed of political intrigue, a powerful trading city whose fortunes were controlled by the all-pervading state and the power of the Doge. This febrile world is powerfully evoked in a colourful programme of concertos by Vivaldi, including a ‘re-arrangement of a Bach arrangement’ and a salute to a great foreign ruler in the spicy Il Grosso Mogul, which alludes to the Indian court of the Grand Mughal Akbar. The sections of The Four Seasons are unquestionably the most famous of Vivaldi’s many violin concertos, and the much-anticipated interpretation by Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque of these uplifting and vividly pictorial works makes an exciting opener to this year’s festival.
