Vivaldi with Terje Tønnesen
Part 2 of 'I'm a Rock 'n' Roll Star'
Vivaldi was at the centre of musical life in baroque Venice. The flame-haired ‘Red Priest’ was an impresario, a constant schemer, always ready for the next (well paid) gig and a famed composer violin virtuoso.
In programme no.2 at Wilton’s, Terje Tønnesen brings an irreverent approach to Vivaldi’s music that the composer would have recognised – thrilling performances, with his own unique take on Vivaldi’s most famous work, The Four Seasons, with City of London Sinfonia. Combined with music by other violin virtuosos from history, this is a gig that recaptures the party spirit and decadence of Vivaldi’s Venice.
