Antonio Vivaldi is the star of this evening’s program, dedicated to his rare sacred pieces. Listening to these one realises the extent of his creativity in adapting this very special language for different groups of instruments. Modo Antiquo with its conductor Federico Maria Sardelli – widely acknowledged for his studies of Vivaldi’s corpus – offer a program of three rarely published concertos (RV 775, RV 808 and RV 818) together with some better known pieces such as the famous Concerto per archi e basso continuo RV 169 “Al Santo Sepolcro”. The group plays original instruments, and tonight they will be joined by the violinist Federico Guglielmo, a specialist in early music.

This concert is part of the thematic area Between sacred and profane.

Loggia del Cashmere - Isola Madre

The Loggia del Cashmere on Isola Madre is the original venue for an en plein air concert. It is situated in front of a wonderful garden overlooked by a huge Cashmere cyprus.

The island is reached for the concert thanks to a boat organized on the occasion by the Festival, leaving Stresa main pier at 8.00 p.m..

From the Isola Madre pier you can only reach the Loggia del Cashmere by a short walk and by four flights of stairs.
