Bojan Čičić Director & solo violin
Dunedin Consort is joined by guest director and superstar violinist Bojan Čičić for this fiery all-Vivaldi programme, which explores the rich array of music that Vivaldi composed for the court orchestra in Dresden. From the tongue-in-cheek ‘per il Coglioni’ (‘for the idiots’), so named because Vivaldi was asked to write in the figures for the continuo player, to the exquisite virtuosity of the Concerto in B flat major, which Vivaldi’s French publisher deemed worthy of a collection of ‘elite’ Italian concertos. Together these works present a snapshot of the extraordinary invention and craft that earned Vivaldi his rightful reputation as master of the baroque concerto.
Pre-concert talk with Bojan Čičić: 6.30pm. Free but ticketed
