Listen for an interview with The Vivaldi Project Directors on WETA's Classical Conversations the week of the Concert, and on WBJC (91.5 Baltimore).
Trio sonatas were the most important and popular form of instrumental music of the baroque period. Essentially invented by the Italians, composers throughout Europe turned their attention to this flexible, expressive, and conversational form. The Vivaldi Project follows the trio sonata from the expert hands of Vivaldi and his contemporaries to those of Handel and C.P.E. Bach.
The Vivaldi Project, founded by baroque violinist Elizabeth Field in 2006, specializes in historically informed performances of the 17th and 18th century string repertoire. Field will be joined for the concert by Allison Edberg (violin), Stephanie Vial (cello), Billy Simms (therebo and guitar), and Henry Lebedinsky (harpsichord).
