When we mention Venice, who doesnt think of Vivaldi? There are few composers more famous than the 18th-century Italian, who is also the central figure in this concert by Les Buffardins. They will present two characterful sonatas, one for violin and one for cello, along with the evocative flute concerto La Notte. This virtuoso piece will be performed on a replica of a third flute, or traverso in F, by the North Italian flute maker Carlo Palanca. The oboe concerto by Marcello will be played on the traverso by Frank Theuns. It is the key that makes this interpretation plausible. The ensemble Les Buffardins, founded by Frank Theuns, brings Italian joie de vivre to AMUZ.
