Vivaldi : Les 4 Saisons / Ave Maria célèbres

Music, Classical and opera
Eglise de la Madeleine
Oliver Knight / Time Out Eglise de la Madeleine

No better way to celebrate the onset of Autumn (or mourn the passing of Summer) than by indulging in the seasonal metaphors of Vivaldi’s perennial chamber favourite: soaring strings denoting the freshness of Spring, cold minor keys heralding the onset of Winter, and so on. To warm you up afterwards, up-and-coming soprano Aurélie Loilier will be giving a rendition of Schubert’s ‘Ave Maria’ – for which L’église de la Madeleine should provide a suitably atmospheric setting. And if the old chestnuts don’t do it for you, the programme is filled out by lesser-known pieces from various Baroque composers (Albinoni, Handel, Lully).
