The Baroque Orchestra of Barcelona comes back to the Palau de la Música for two days (July 10th and August 29th) as a solo act in order to make the public fall in love with their renditions of different concerts for orchestra with solo violin from Antonio Vivaldi, a renowned Venetian composer.
After they took part in a few sessions for Catalan choirs back in 2014, the Baroque Orchestra of Barcelona is coming back to the Palau de la Música under the direction of Gilles Colliard, a Swiss musician who has performed and directed, all around Europe, concerts and compositions written by the most famous geniuses in the history of music. This time, the program includes parts of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, some of which are considered as some of the most recognisable melodies in the world (British musician Nigel Kennedy made it into the Guinness World Records book thanks to his recording of them, which became the best-selling classical music album of all-times).
During these concerts, which are included in the NovAria Artists cycle (which gets its name from the company in charge of promoting lyrical and opera shows at the Palau), Colliard will also take on the role of main solo performer, which will allow him to showcase his talents beyond the abilities required to direct a whole orchestra.
There is no doubt about it— no classical music lover should miss these two dates. On July 10th and August 29th, enjoy the Baroque Orchestra of Barcelona at the Palau de la Música.
