Loved this performance of the Four Seasons in the Chiesa della Pieta, full of vitality and contrasts. The virtuoso was Antonio Aiello. It was preceded by 3 pieces by Sarasate whom we'd never heard of before. A lovely evening.

Amazing concerto in historical environment. It is lifetime experience listen Vivaldi’s music in his own “home church” - same place what for it was created. We listened “The Four seasons” and it was incredible beautiful.

My husband had booked this concert for us - Rossini to commence followed by Vivaldi's Four Seasons in its entirety. Alberto Martini is a very accomplished musician. It was a lovely concert in beautiful surroundings. It was the perfect end to our day.

The concert was billed as ‘Vivaldi and other baroque composers’ and ‘come and listen to the music played where it was composed’. I have three issues with this concert, it was freezing cold, there were too few musicians to make any impact in the large...More
