For many melomaniacs the ample oeuvre of Antonio Vivaldi is the quintessence of Baroque music, to which they listen with a nearly devout respect. In the course of centuries the composer’s works have become an object of innumerable arrangements, trancriptions or other adaptations, which do not always harmonize with their original value. We are given a rare opportunity to listen to the works by this Italian master performed in their authentic versions by the Ensemble Matheus.
Ensemble Matheus with its conductor Jean-Christophe Spinosi belongs to sought-after ensembles not only on the European music scene. They come to the BMF with the Polish countertenor Jakub-Józef Orliński. This young artist has triumphed on both theatre and concert stages, as well as in recording studios. The live broadcast from the Festival in Aix-en-Provence (2017), where he performed Vivaldi, was watched online by over four million listeners. Successful TV appearances followed in collaboration with the French National Orchestra – a concert under the Eiffel Tower, a concert for the support of the renovation of the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, and many others.
