The Louisiana Sinfonietta will go “Mostly Vivaldi” for its second concert of the season on Sunday, Oct. 8.
The performance begins at 2 p.m. in the LSU School of Music Recital Hall on Dalrymple Drive.
Antonin Vivaldi, the most prolific composer of Baroque orchestral music with 500 concertos attributed to him, will be represented on the program by his "Concerto for Four Violins in B minor," performed by violin soloists from the Sinfonietta.
In addition, his piece "La Farfalleta for Soprano and Strings" will be performed, as well as Fritz Kreisler’s "Concerto in C Major for Violin and Orchestra in the Style of Vivaldi."
Soprano Cara Waring will sing the Farfalleta piece and also join with a quartet from the Sinfonietta to present a piece by conductor and music director Dinos Constantinides, "Evangeline II for Voice and String Quartet."
Violinist Marianna Krewer also will be soloist for the Kreisler piece.
Compositions by Christopher Lowry, Yassaman Behbahani and Mitchell Kerns also will be presented.
