The Baroque Orchestra of Barcelona was created in 2010 with the desire to diffuse and exhume the music of the 17th and 18th centuries.
Composed by musicians mostly in Catalonia and specialized in the interpretation of baroque music on period instruments, the Baroque Orchestra of Barcelona offers a very wide repertoire. On this occasion we propose a trip to the work of Antonio Vivaldi, from the brightest arias for Countertenor - in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries this particular type of voice was the real vocal star throughout Europe - to the sublime and immortal masterpiece of all Baroque instrumental, the famous "The four seasons ”.
