#5 of 70 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.

  • I've heard the concert last Saturday, 16.3.19 in Venice. I was very disappointed of this musical demonstration and interpretation of the 4 seasons. Unfortunately, the Cellist has only portrayed himself and you never could look at him. Horrible!! Like a raised monkey. Also his musical quality left much to be desired. Pity for the other musicians who played very well.This constant shivering of the cellist must distract them a lot. What a shame. Next time I will look for an other concert without this guy.
  • Wonderful ! It's a pleasure to listen the 4 seasons in a such amazing place, 2 steps from San Marco Piazza. The sound was very good, the music perfect. Thank you
