Antonio Vivaldi

4th March 1678 – 28th July 1741




Some forthcoming Australian concerts and performances featuring music of Vivaldi:

Australian Brandenburg Orchestra - Vivaldi’s Venice

Xavier de Maistre -  harp

The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra with Paul Dyer (conductor, harpsichord) and Xavier de Maistre (harp) present Vivaldi’s Venice.

For those who missed Xavier de Maistre's 2018 performances with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra, White Hat strongly suggests that you go out of your way to hear him this time around. As one of the most sought-after soloists in the world we expect he will not disappoint in this program  which includes an adaption for harp and orchestra of ‘Winter’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons.
