Britain’s best-loved classical touring ensemble, the Locrian, present a musical tribute to the great Venetian composer, Antonio Vivaldi.

Attired in lavish period costume, performing in front of a stunning classical set, these charismatic musicians perform Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, a composition which depicts 17th century Italian rural life in a wonderfully inventive manner. Other works include the virtuoso Concerto for Two Violins, the Rustic Symphony, and classics such as Pachelbel’s Canon, and Handel’s Arrival of the Queen of Sheba.

Step back for a while from the hectic pace of our anxious times, into the elegance and grace of the Baroque, whilst listening to harmonies of this great melodic genius weaving his magical spell.
