From Trio Sonata to Trio Concertant.

The Vivaldi Project continues to explore the overlooked role of the string trio in chamber music history, from the Baroque trio sonata through its rich and varied Classical forms. The Trio will feature selections from their first, and soon-to-be-released second volume, of classical string trios, which include works by Campioni, J.C. Bach, Haydn and other masters of the period including a newly discovered trio from the Moravian Archives by Ignaz Klausek.vivaldi project website

Praised for its brilliant and expressive playing, The Vivaldi Project presents innovative programs of Baroque and Classical string repertoire that combine scholarship and performance to both educate and delight audiences. The period instrument ensemble takes its name from the virtuoso violinist and innovative composer Antonio Vivaldi in recognition of his pivotal position between earlier Baroque and later Classical composers. The Vivaldi Project is receiving critical acclaim for its recent release of Discovering the Classical String Trio (MSR Records).
