Vivaldi in Venice

Peter Medhurst

Peter appears in the UK and abroad as a musician and a scholar, giving recitals and delivering illustrated lectures on music and the arts. He studied singing and early keyboard instruments at the Royal College of Music and at Mozarteum in Salzburg.


Vivaldi is the one Baroque composer whose music is a direct reflection of the city in which it was composed. Against the luxurious backdrop of 18th century Venice this lecture explores the amazing world of Vivaldi’s music - music that is intrinsically Venetian as the canvasses of Canaletto.
