Owner description: The Orchestra Virtuosi di Venezia-Orchestra da camera di San Marco had been formed in 2002 under the inspiration of Vivaldi's work. The ensemble and the musical formation have both been chosen to recall the exact situation in which Vivaldi worked and reproposes in its concerts the athmosphere and the genio of the Red Priest' compositions. The Orchestra was born with the intention and the honor of paying tribute to the great composer in the prestigious Ateneo di San Basso, in San Marco square, whose hall has the same dimensions of the Pieta Institue music hall, in which Vivaldi composed.

We went on a beautiful night to see the Virtuosi de Venezia concert of Vivaldi 4 seasons.
It was a dream to see this type of concert, live, in Venice. I was there with my girlfriend who is a cellist herself, and musician. But what dissapointed we experienced: from the start of the performance in it's first minute: we startred hearing, false note, out of rhytm notes, sounds totally out of tune from the 1st violin...ok, no worries these things happen, it is the beauty of live art.
But it kept going.
Then, the real "star" of the show, the soloist violonist came on, and he was worst !!!!!!
He had a very pretentious attitude, forcing himself to have a strong persona on stage, but failing miserabily. He was playing every fast and complex section, in the sloppyiest way, missing tons of notes, clumsy without any precision....and the false notes kept coming, kept coming.
He semmed to be telling himself: they won't notice, that will do, just keep playing and smiling.
The orchestra seemed totally lost, bored, they played with absolutely NO PASSION, NO LOVE.
Basically, the captain of the boat was a joke, making it hard to keep up with that.
We felt as"visitors-tourist" we were treated with disrespect, and brought on a ride.
After this night, we thought, we have to try again with another group, It can't be like this all over Venice....
We finally went to see the Interpreti Veneziani at the Chiesa San Vidal, playing Vivaldi and Albinoni, AND WOW ! A totally opposite exoerience. Beautiful musicians, so talented, so vibrant and precise. Such strong complecity and joy ran across this group, and the soloist were EXTRAORDINARY. The men playing piccolo and flute was a genius.
There you have it. If you can avoid Virtuosi, it seems like a good idea.

It was a wonderful evening-several violinist, piano, celloist and a soprano & tenor. They sang many of the most famous opera arias. When the young woman-sang Gianni Schicchi by Puccini, it literally made me cry! They were very talented and at only 25 Euro pp I thought it was a great value and very pleasant evening.

The highlight of our time in Venice, a real must do whilst your there even if your not a fan of classical music. The sound in the building leaves you tingling and the young violinist who appears after the first few numbers is a genius.

We arrived at the small theatre (I think that it is a converted chapel) in the corner of St marks square to be entertained by a String quartet and a male and female singer. We had a delightful evening listening to a taste of some classics only to walk out into St Marks sqaure when the performance was complete. It made for a lovely end to a wonderful time in Venice.
