Be dazzled by music of Vivaldi and Veracini, two Italian baroque composers whose rivalry inspired them to create an abundance of delightful and exuberant works. Concertmaster Eric Gratz acts as soloist and leader in two concertos from Vivaldi’s ground-breaking L’estro armonico (harmonic invention), which are works of sparkling charm with sheer virtuosity. The program opens with two works by Veracini, a synthesis of Italian concertos and German orchestral suites conducted by Akiko Fujimoto.
