In 2017 the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi celebrates seventy years since its foundation. For this important anniversary, the Institute is organising the first “Accademia Vivaldi” in collaboration with the Akademie für Alte Musik Bremen of the Hochschule für Künste Bremen.
Entirely devoted to performing and interpreting Vivaldi’s music, the nine-day summer school will enable selected musicians from all over the world to tackle his rich repertoire and especially those compositions by the “Red Priest” that have been the subject of recent publications edited by the Istituto Vivaldi.
An extensive range of courses will be on offer and students will receive both one-to-one and ensemble tuition, during which they will work on Vivaldi’s solo compositions, his chamber music and religious works, as well as his colourful concerti. The course will culminate in a concert performance of Vivaldi’s opera „Teuzzone“, based on a new edition by the Istituto Vivaldi and driven by an intensive exchange of ideas with specialists in the field of Musicology and History of Art.
Concerts have also been planned across the city, at locations, which suit the repertoires: La Pietà, Fondazione Cini, the Biblioteca Marciana, the Scuola Grande di San Rocco.
