Vistoli, Vivaldi – Virtuosity. The two protagonists Carlo Vistoli and Antonio Vivaldi promise a highly virtuosic and at the same time profound programme. One countertenor's voice meets the compositions and together with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin, they fill the baroque Schlosstheater with highlights of the Italian baroque. Like hardly any other composer, Vivaldi gave sacred music a new, unheard-of emotional power. At the same time devotion and expressive tone always go hand in hand. Artfully set instrumental works that take up this style complete the evening.
Due to illness, countertenor Carlo Vistoli will unfortunately not be able to sing the concert on Thursday, 29 June in the baroque Schlosstheater as planned. At short notice, however, Filippo Mineccia, also a countertenor, could be won for the evening with the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin and will take over Vistoli's vocal parts. The concert is dedicated to the sacred music of Antonio Vivaldi.
