Renowned soloists return to headline this program of virtuosic baroque concerti. Horacio Franco brings his signature charisma to Vivaldi and Bach, and “fearsomely powerful” violinist Aisslinn Nosky is sure to thrill in Bach’s ebullient Violin Concerto in E Major.
Each ACO concert begins with a lively talk by conductor Thomas Crawford, with the full orchestra performing highlights from the program. Crawford’s insights and humor, along with the transparent texture of 18th-century instruments, open a portal into the sound world of the great Classical composers and a deeper appreciation of this timeless music. Concert previews are free to all ticket holders and begin at 8 pm.
