“Vivaldi versus Bach”
Italy versus Germany — Vivaldi versus Bach. Two of the most influential national styles of the Baroque era on one stage: Italian passion and virtuosity are confronted by German earnestness and sophistication.
VERITÀ opens their concert with the famous Vivaldi Trio Sonata in G minor in collaboration with the Alinde Quartett. The program continues with an unknown, yet gorgeous trio sonata by Bach’s cousin, Johann Ernst for flute, violin and basso continuo. The concert ends brilliantly with the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5.
