Some forthcoming Australian concerts and performances featuring the music of Vivaldi:

Lixsania and the Labyrinth
Lixsania Fernandez

The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra with Paul Dyer (Artistic Director), Lixsania Fernandez (Cuba) viola da gamba and  Shaun Lee-Chen baroque violin perform

  • Corelli, A. Scarlatti, Marais Folia pasticcio
  • Locatelli Violin Concerto in D 'Il laberinto armonico', Op. 3 No. 12
  • Vivaldi Concerto for 2 violins & viola da gamba, RV 578
  • Graun Concerto for Viola da Gamba in G Major
  • Vivaldi Sinfonia al Santo Sepolcro, RV 169
  • Duchiffre Tango from Concerto for 2 Violas da Gamba

Charismatic Lixsania Fernandez’s energetic viola da gamba leads the Brandenburg in this tantalizing twist on the baroque. Her passionate performances on this iconic baroque instrument bring a vibrant energy to Vivaldi and Graun before detouring for a spirited Tango. Brandenburg's Concertmaster Shaun Lee-Chen performs Locatelli’s infamous Violin Concerto in D, The Harmonic Labyrinth. The immense technical challenge of this work was hinted at by the composer when he inscribed the score with ‘easy to enter, difficult to exit’.

White Hat suggests that if you think of baroque music as being stuffy and boring, this could well be the concert to change your mind.

Summer Recomposed
Miki Tsunoda - violin

White Hat suggests that if you might be interested in classical music that is viewed through a contemporary popular lens but without being dumbed down to the simple mindless techno beat and restricted harmonic palette found in most classic remixes, then this concert may be an ear-opener.

The young performers of Momentum Ensemble (part of the Australian Youth Orchestra) directed by Ariel Zuckermann with Miki Tsunoda (solo violin) will perform Max Richter's highly acclaimed adaptation of Vivaldi's Summer Violin Concerto from the Four Seasons in which Richter uses phases, loops and other devices to reimagine the work.

Hindemith's Kammermusik views music of the classical period through the lens of early 20th century neo-classicism, while the concert ends with one of the major works of late 18th century classical music - Haydn's Drum Roll Symphony.

Upper Hunter Conservatorium of Music, Muswellbrook - 6.30pm, Saturday 8th December 2018
Art Gallery of NSW, Sydney - 7pm, Sunday 9th December 2018
Deakin Edge, Melbourne - 6.30pm, Monday 10 December 2018
