Teatro alla moda

In 1720, the composer Benedetto Marcello published a pamphlet entitled Il Teatro alla moda, in which he strongly attacked in an ironic way what he considered to be the shortcomings of the opera of his day. In 2015, the warm French violinist Amandine Beyer chose this as the title of her all-Vivaldi recording and she reverts to it once more for this concert of Italian concertante music reuniting no less than seven of her contemporaries. According to her, “each of the ‘qualities’ thus teased” is exactly what makes the panache of this music.
