Event Details

The vocal and instrumental chamber music of Vivaldi, as well as the chamber music of Corelli emanate the passion, temperament and beauty of Italian music of the first decades of the 18th century. It also informs us of the inspiration it provided for other composers, such as Handel and Bach, who integrated these stylistic elements into their own musical vernacular. The concert, “Inspired by Italy: Corelli, Vivaldi and Handel” held on February 16, 2019 features returning special guest, soprano Nathalie Paulin and harpsichordist Christopher Bagan.
