Al Bustan Festival 2018 - Bach and Vivaldi

Accademia Bizantina
Ottavio Dantone, Harpsichord/ conductor

Bach and Vivaldi never met, but when Bach moved to Weimar, Germany in 1708, Vivaldi’s music was very popular.
Bach was very interested in Vivaldi’s Italian style and transcribed many of his compositions.
This is a great opportunity to listen to the works of these two composers played by the Accademia Bizantina, one of the best known baroque music ensembles in the world, directed by Ottavio Dantone.
Dantone conducted many of today’s great orchestras, including the Berlin Staatskapelle, the Orchestre National de France, the Philharmonic Orchestra of La Scala in Milan and the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome.
