“Antonio Lucio Vivaldi as you’ve never heard him before was the promise and, while I’ve heard a lot of Vivaldi performed on authentic instruments with regard to the performing practices of his day, I hadn’t heard him played by a local ensemble of players versed in Baroque performance, to this standard, and I certainly hope to hear the Adelaide Baroque Orchestra again, and regularly. Adelaide is a UNESCO city of music and home to one of the world’s most influential arts festivals and as I sat in the Elder Hall, I thought “yes, we should have a baroque orchestra, and this is an impressive beginning”.

“Adelaide Baroque Orchestra is going from strength to strength, filling an important gap in Adelaide’s musical life, and long may it continue.”
