The Carnival of Venice program, arranged by the Carion Quintet in a colorful and clever manner, will invite you on a lavishly embellished gondola to join a gondolier on an exciting journey to La Serenissima – the pearl of the Adriatic, the ever-young and ever-changing Venice!
This wonderful and expressive program will take you on the journey to La Serenissima – this Adriatic pearl so culturally rich and diverse. You will most definitely recognize the musical landmarks – Vivaldi’s rhythmic drive and energy, Paganini’s mesmerizing virtuosity; Puccini’s and Verdi’s captivating melodies will move you emotionally so that you will want to sing along. Rossini, whose operas saw many premieres in Teatro La Fenice, also cannot be missed to make the list compete.
But no journey can be true without unveiling something yet unknown. Let’s rediscover perhaps unduly forgotten Baroque masters Buonamente and Cavalli. Let’s be truly amazed by Briccialdi’s brilliance and surprised by the the connection which Stravinsky’s distinct musical style makes with this Venetian music.
Let a breeze of Borae wind to clear the air with our fresh and unique approach to classical chamber music! Gone are the sheets of music and music stands, free is the stage: the canvas upon which we will paint our expressive gestures and movement, dialogues and characters, roleplay and genuine drama. The Carnival of Venice in its truest musical sense.
