Performance Santa Fe<br>
Venice Baroque Orchestra









The world-renowned Venice Baroque Orchestra has spent 20 years carving out a unique, creative niche, performing inspired, modern-day premieres of many previously forgotten masterpieces by such Baroque masters as Benedetto Marcello and Francesco Cavalli. In addition to unknown instrumental works like Vivaldi’s violin concertos, VBO has also performed and recorded motets and opera arias long forgotten until very recently. However, what truly sets VBO apart is that rare combination of collective virtuosity matched with an on stage enthusiasm more akin to that of a rock concert. Music composed centuries ago may as well have been written last week.
