"Vivaldi, mist and light" chamber music concert, by Les Idées Heureuses



The Italian Cultural Institute of Montreal is pleased to present the concert "Vivaldi, mist and light", by Les Idées Heureuses.

Wednesday, October 6, 7:30pm

Salle Bourgie
1339, rue Sherbrooke West


This chamber music concert with nine musicians showcases the soft and warm tones of rarely heard Italian Baroque instruments – including the small mandolin, the baroque guitar, the viola d'amore and the cello with 5 strings – in the masterful compositions of Antonio Vivaldi. The multiple plucked instruments – mandolin, guitar, lute and theorbo– combined with the luminosity of the Italian harpsichord and the sweetness of the chamber organ, promise to create a moment of great intimacy.

The concert lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes without intermission.

On the program: Works by Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741): Concerto for two mandolins in G major (RV 532), Trio for violin, lute and continuo in G minor (RV 85), Concerto for viola d'amore, mandolin, strings and continuo in D minor (RV 540), Concerto for cello in G major (RV 414), TRADUCTION À INSÉRER pour Concerto pour orgue en ré majeur transcrit par J.S.
