Antonio Vivaldi is a household name through his vastly famous The Four Seasons. In this exciting concert, the orchestra presents five lesser-known of his more than seven hundred works, full of the sparkling energy, vitality, and the bubbling originality that made him a star not just in his native Venice, but throughout Europe in his own day. Guest soprano Nell Snaïdas will sing two unforgettable cantatas, In furore, and Laudate, pueri. Freshman flute student Erin Barrett plays the famous La Notte (“Night”) concerto; and concertmaster Igor Pikayzen brings to the stage two of the most brilliant violin concertos that give the famous Seasons a run for its money. Enhancing the evening’s program is the world premiere of Ghazal, a profound and thoughtful work for string orchestra by graduating Adelphi senior, Oswaldo Machado.
