Rediscovering the String Trio
Trios by Boccherini, Cambini, Haydn, and Mozart
The Vivaldi Project brings to life the Classical String Trio, an exciting and flexible genre explored by some of the 18th century's greatest composers.  Performing on period instruments, The Vivaldi Project Trio, comprised of violin, viola and cello, explores the delightful textures and sonorities of a set of mostly unknown classical and early romantic works—the direct descendants of the baroque trio sonata. The program will include trios by Haydn, Mozart, Boccherini and Cambini.

Maggini Magic: Music by Vivaldi, Marini, Bertali, J.S. Bach, Mozart, and Rossini 
Introducing the newly restored 1610 "Delmas" Maggini violone with guest artist, Anne Trout.  
Revolutionary for its time, both in quality and design, the Maggini string bass possesses a unique clarity and beauty that calls to mind the flavors of dark chocolate and the richly distinctive Nebbiolo grape cultivated in Italy's Lombardy region and birthplace of Maggini. The concert program explores the versatility of early pedigree bass from its Italian origins to its role in the great capitols of 18th- and early 19th-century Europe.

Trio Treats: Music by Vivaldi, J.C. Bach, Haydn, Giardini, and Mozart
The Vivaldi Project continues its exploration of the string trio, following its path from Baroque trio sonata through its Classical form in the hands of some the late-18th century's greatest composers.  Only a few of these string trios survive as celebrated works to modern audiences, notably the grand Divertimento in Eb by Mozart and the op. 9 set of three string trios by Beethoven. But there is a trove of these magical compositions by important composers including JC Bach, Cambini, Boccherini, Campioni, the famed Joseph Haydn, and many others. Largely ignored by musicians and audiences for over 200 years, these wonderful works contribute to the narrative of the evolution of the chamber music canon, as well as a proving ground for working out ideas about concerto and symphony forms.
