Baroque Music for our time
The classical music should not only be reserved to an audience of sophisticated music specialists. Beware of the semantic and expressive changes in the contemporary era, we believe in a concept of music that is closer to our time, but does not give up an excellent musical quality and coherence with the cultural heritage. Now is the time to repopulate and believe in places where vibrant and high quality music can be enjoyed, full of communicative power and immediate beauty.
We believe in this universal language that is open and flexible to new content, suitable for being reinserted into the circuit of the contemporary ideas with a new breath. We shall present some greately talented composers. Their work is a very strong proof, at international level, which confirms the contemporaryity of the Baroque language addressed to the present and to the future.

(Integral of op.2 I part)
Written in 1708, just before the ‘L’estro armonico’ concertos, these sonatas contain all the passion and the virtuosity, all the lyricism and emotion, which have made the concertos so eternally popular. In the words of the great Vivaldi scholar Michael Talbot, “Op 2 is fully Vivaldian and certainly deserves to take its place among his other masterworks.”
