Venice Baroque Orchestra

“Not one note sounds dutiful; joy and a sense of discovery are everywhere.” The Times (U.K.)

“A suberbly polished period-instrument group known for its fresh, zesty Vivaldi recordings.” The New York Times


Founded in 1997 by Baroque scholar and harpsichordist Andrea Marcon, the “irresistible” (The New Yorker) Venice Baroque Orchestra is recognized as one of the premier ensembles devoted to period-instrument performance. A man on a mission, Marcon wants to bring to the group’s performances all the freshness and flash that made Vivaldi’s concertos so groundbreaking in their day.
