“There is no boundary between Vivaldi’s instrumental and lyric works: each section of the orchestra must come to life, be personified, and take part in an imaginary mission. This is the goal we have set ourselves in order to reveal all these hidden gems,” confided Julien Chauvin after winning the Diapason d’or award in April 2020 with an album entirely devoted to the Red Priest (Naïve). In addition to his virtuoso feats with the Concert de la Loge, this morning’s concert will showcase several gems from operas and other oratorios by the Italian composer. This selection is in safe hands with mezzo Eva Zaïcik, whose first love is baroque music. A chance to enjoy Venice in all its vibrancy!
