Presented by Martin Handley

Italian Passions: the Academy of Ancient Music and Bernarda Fink with vocal and instrumental music by Albinoni, Vivaldi, Ferrandini and Veracini.

Veracini: Overture in G minor

Vivaldi: Concerto in E major for violin 'L'amoroso' RV271

Vivaldi: 'Sovente il Sole' from Andromeda Liberata

Bernarda Fink, mezzo-soprano

Rodolfo Richter, director & violin

Brought to life by the "stirring storyteller" Bernarda Fink (The New York Times), this programme explores extremes of human emotion and the open-hearted Italian spirit. Merula's canzonetta 'Now it is time to sleep' - depicting Mary's disturbed lullaby for her dying son, underpinned by an incessant ostinato that lays bare the rawness of her grief - gives way to the tender intertwining of violin and voice in Vivaldi's knowing 'Sovvente il Sole', and to his ecstatic and restless 'L'amoroso' and 'L'inquietudine' concertos.
