Eboracum Baroque are delighted to return to their home city, York to perform in the majestic Mansion House in the centre of the city. They will perform one of the most famous pieces of baroque music ever written, Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The music takes the listener on a journey through the four seasons from the singing of birds in Spring, a fierce thunderstorm in summer, celebrating the harvest festival in Autumn and trembling in the icy cold of Winter.
This performance features the 18th century arrangement for Recorder, Harpsichord and Cello, an arrangement which Vivaldi knew and supported. It is truly virtuosic and at times features two recorders being played at once! It will be performed by star Recorder player, Miriam Monaghan.
*This early performance only features Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and not other vocal and trumpet items which can only be heard in the later sold out concert. Refreshments will be provided at the end of the performance. (17.30 – 18.30)
