Award-winning early music ensemble Sestina presents Music of the Grand Tour from Italy, to include the seminal Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, played by virtuoso Dutch violinist Johannes Leertouwer, the youthful early work of Georg Frederic Handel, Dixit Dominus, and settings of the same psalm text by Claudio Monteverdi, to mark his 450th anniversary.
Join the young voices and players of Sestina and experience music from Italy performed on instruments of the period in stunning surroundings.
“[Mein Freund ist Mein] had everything - musicality, theatricality, pathos, humour, passion, poise, commitment”
“From the moment I entered the venue my attention was commanded by Sestina – and willingly given. I only wish I could have experienced the whole concert again!”
