Venetia Antiqua

VENETIA ANTIQUA "Absolutely amazing! I never knew Baroque music could be so exciting!" "An incredible evening in a beautiful setting." "To be honest, I never really liked Baroque music. But now that I have heard Venetia Antiqua Ensemble, I LOVE it!" Venetia Antiqua is an ensemble of musicians who live or have studied in Venice. Dedicated to the study and sharing of the rich, varied, and fascinating repertoire of Baroque Music in Italy and abroad, the musicians play period instruments or exact copies, following the performance practices of the time. The group is comprised of musicians who also perform individually with other important orchestras (Venice Baroque Orchestra, I Solisti Veneti, Santa Fe Pro Musica), with important conductors (Andrea Marcon, Sir Simon Rattle, Marc Minkowski, Alan Curtis, Sir John Eliot Gardiner), in the most important international theaters and concert halls (Carnegie Hall, Wigmore Hall, Musikverein), and who record with the best-known labels (Sony, Arts, Deutsche Grammophon e Towerhill). As resident ensemble, Venetia Antiqua is the protagonist of the Season of Baroque Music in the splendid setting of St. George’s Anglican Church, where the ensemble’s concerts are enhanced by performances of choirs, chamber music, and solo recitals by important guests from around the world. The orchestra Venetia Antiqua, during the 2015 Season of Venice Music Project, which combines famous and beloved music with lesser-known but equally glorious works, as well as first performances in modern times, continues its rediscovery of the great composer Johann Adolf Hasse (1699-1783), German but Venetian by adoption, and is thrilled to collaborate with the Istituto Vivaldi of the Giorgio Cini Foundation in presenting the full cycle of motets for solo voice and orchestra by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741). The second part of our season will include further performances of “A Venetian Affair,” in collaboration with and starring Andrea di Robilant, the author, and we will inaugurate a cycle of concerts titled “Amor Prigioniero,” based on Greek mythology.
