This FREE enchanting program opens with Corelli's Christmas Concerto.  While practically every baroque composer wrote their own unique Christmas concerto, Corelli’s is the most popular.   Widely recognized as the father of the concerto grosso, Corelli was a true master at his art, and nowhere is it more apparent than in the calm and lovely atmosphere he creates.  Corelli also saves his Pastorale for the final movement, a glittering jewel in the repetoire.   The four concerti that make up Vivaldi’s Four Seasons have become part of our collective soundscape, each illustrating the unique environments, moods and colors brought on by the changing seasons.   They paint pictures of the Italian seasons: the gentle breezes of Spring, insects buzz in the Summer heat, a hunt in Autumn and sitting inside next to the fire listening to the rain in Winter.  Do not miss this FREE chamber program featuring two of the most popular compositions from the Baroque era.
