Interpreti Veneziani: The Four Seasons in Venice
Venice, Chiesa di San Vidal — Main Hall
About the Event
Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of The Four Seasons by Vivaldi at Venice's remarkable Chiesa di San Vidal.
The Four Seasons is Antonio Vivaldi's most famous work. Written in the Baroque era, during the 18th century, it is a set of four violin concertos that represent the seasons of the year. The composer took his inspiration from the countryside around Mantua, where he lived when he wrote the work, including the sounds of flowing creeks and singing birds in his composition.
San Vidal (San Vitale) is a Venetian concert and event hall located in the Sestiere of San Marco, at one end of Campo Santo Stefano.
Established at the end of the 11th Century by Doge Vitale Falier in honor of his namesake saint, the building burned down and was replaced in the 16th Century. Further renovations were needed in the 17th Century, and were completed in the style of the period. The interior hall has a vaulted ceiling, paintings by Pellegrini and Piazzetta dating back to the 17th century, and a detailed presbytery by Vittore Carpaccio. The altar piece depicts San Vidal on Horseback with Eight Saints, watched overfrom above by the Virgin with the Christ Child.
The composer Baldassare Galuppi was buried here, although his funeral was held in a nearby church called Santo Stefano, and no gravestone can be found in the hall.

Nothing like a concert of Vivaldi in his native city. Davide the cellist is a rockstar. It's a must go in Venice.

Fantastische Vorstellung, insbesondere der letzte Virtuose mit seiner Interpretation von Carmen hat meine Erwartungen um das vielfache übertroffen.
