St David’s Hall
Friday 13 February
THE International Concert Series continues at St David’s Hall with the sensational Armonico Consort featuring one of the most exciting talents in British classical music.
Armonico Consort will make their first visit to the National Concert Hall of Wales on Friday 13 February with a breathtaking programme of Vivaldi beautifully played by violin soloist Nicola Benedetti. At the age of just 16, she won the prestigious BBC Young Musician of the Year competition. Since then, Benedetti has established herself as one of the most sought after violinists of her generation. Her ability to enchant audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence has made her one of today’s most influential classical artists.
Directed by the acclaimed Christopher Monks, Armonico Consort consistently delight audiences with their fresh, youthful performances of Baroque music.
This Vivaldi concert promises to be full of the life and vigour which set alight 18th century Venice, and continues to captivate classical crowds. Experience the grandeur of Beatus Vir and Concert in D, Grosso Mogul. Plus, there’s the intense drama of The Four Seasons.
Also, there will be an insightful free pre-concert talk entitled Baroque Up Close about Vivaldi led by Cardiff University School of Music’s Simone Laghi from 6.30pm-7pm at the venue’s Lefel 1.
The International Concert Series offers breathtaking performances of classical music from the world’s best orchestras. Experience the thrill of the amazing Armonico Consort live in one of Europe’s finest acoustic venues at the National Concert Hall of Wales!
