La Serenissima at the Wigmore Hall
September 9 | 7:30 pm
Caldara, Conti and Vivaldi
The musical legacy of Holy Roman Emperor Charles VI is commemorated with vocal and instrumental works by Viennese court composers Antonio Caldara and Francesco Conti, as well as Vivaldi, whose hopes of local preferment were dashed by the Emperor’s death. In this concert, La Serenissima and soloists Hilary Summers and Neal Davies explore various arias, sinfonias and concertos from His Majesty’s Imperial Court.
