Nota Bene Baroque Players in a co-production with INNERchamber / Factory Arts Baroque Ensemble (Stratford) and Agnes Zsigovics, soprano
Early in his career, the genius Handel spent five inspiring years in Italy, but no record exists that he ever met the prolific Italian composer Vivaldi; it would appear that they passed like ships in the night. Supposing these two giants of the Baroque did actually meet? Let's sample from the motets, operas and instrumental music they composed during this slice in time, perhaps in each other's presence.
For the opening of NBBP's 13th season, we are joined by the internationally renowned early music specialist, soprano Agnes Zsigovics and musicians from the Factory Arts Baroque Ensemble.
