About the Event

Experience classical music like never before in this astonishing performance of masterworks by Vivaldi at Venice's remarkable Chiesa di San Vidal.

Antonio Vivaldi is known to history as one of the foremost creators of the instrumental concerto genre, and as a successful early exponent of orchestral music. Born in Venice on in 1678, Vivaldi was a weak and sickly child, suffering from asthma, yet passionately devoted to music. His father, Giovanni Batista, a professional violinist, taught Antonio to play the violin. With his father, young Antonio met the best musicians in Venice and gave concerts in local churches. Vivaldi also worked as a violin teacher, and later became music director at the orphanage Ospedalle della Pieta, a post that greatly influenced his compositions. Composing concertos, sacred works and vocal music, from 1713 he achieved great recognition with his sacred choral music. Captivated by the world of opera, Vivaldi established himself as both opera composer and impresario at the Teatro San Angelo. In 1717 he took the prestigious position of Director of Secular Music at the court of Mantua and worked there until around 1720. During this period he composed the masterpiece for which he is best known, 'The Four Seasons'.

In the 1730's Vivaldi's career dwindled as his music became unfashionable. The great composer died in poverty, and his music disappeared into oblivion. Two centuries passed before his music was rediscovered and reevaluated by the wider world. In the early 20th century many previously unknown works were rediscovered, immediately capturing the hearts of music lovers.

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.

    A vibrant and musically fine performance. The ensemble was excellent with the group responding and moving as one. The soloists were very fine players but virtuosity never took over from musicality. Clearly informed baroque performance practice. We have seen the group several times and it is always a joy.

    Vivaldi am Geburts — und Lebensort von einem derart strak inspirierten, erstklassigen Septett in der ausverkauften, viel Athmosphäre verströmenden Chiesa San Vidal (viele Italiener und nicht nur Touristen) zu geniessen, das ist ein Musikereignis bester Qualität.
