Concerts of Classical Music
A treat for classical music lovers are the concerts at the Teatrino di Palazzo Grassi. 2013 sees the bicentenaries of Verdi and Wagner as well as the 300 years since the death of Arcangelo Corelli, one of the fathers of Baroque music. The September concert will be a Baroque feast with pieces by Vivaldi, Marcello and Correli. Complex musical themes and layering of instruments means that each time you hear a piece, like Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, there is always something you haven’t heard before and you will find yourself mimicking the conductor’s movements. It’s like air guitar for classical music.
