    Conductor and flautist Giovanni Antonini’s journey with Italian Baroque music goes back a long way, and his performances of Vivaldi have lit up many a concert. This morning, he is paying tribute to three neglected Venetian Baroque composers who played a crucial role in the development of the genre. Giovanni Legrenzi was a major link in the instrumental chain between Gabrieli and Vivaldi, with whom he may have studied according to some sources. Venetian violinist Dario Castello played an important role in the transition of the instrumental canzona into the sonata form. Lastly, composer and violinist Tarquinio Merula was one of the key figures in the early development of the modern cantata and sonata forms.
