Venetian Baroque: Galuppi + Vivaldi + Bortniansky (SOLD OUT)
Performed by Cappella Romana and Portland Baroque Orchestra

Sat, 22 Mar, 2014 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

Especially during Venice’s golden age, “La Serenissima” was a major hub of commercial, cultural, religious, and linguistic exchange. This musical program by period performance specialists Cappella Romana vocal ensemble and Portland Baroque Orchestra (PBO) will explore the city’s connections with the Venice of the North, St. Petersburg, Russia, through the music of Baldassare Galuppi, who was Maestro di Cappella at San Marco in Venice as well as at Catherine the Great’s Imperial Chapel in St. Petersburg.

The program features grand scale and rarely heard sacred choral works in both Latin (for San Marco in Venice) and in Church Slavonic (for the Russian Imperial Chapel), performed in the visually spectacular Kridel Ballroom at the Portland Art Museum. PBO will perform instrumental music by another of Venice’s famed musical residents, Antonio Vivaldi; some works once thought to be by Vivaldi are now known to be by Galuppi. Galuppi’s influence will also be heard in a cappella Slavonic works by Ukrainian Dmitry Bortniansky, who was sent to study with Galuppi in Venice by Catherine the Great.

Directing the program is guest conductor Mark Bailey, a specialist in both Baroque instrumental and Slavic music, known to Portland audiences from prior appearances including sold-out concerts with Cappella Romana. He is a professional Baroque violist and founder and director of the American Baroque Orchestra. Co-presented with Portland Baroque Orchestra & Cappella Romana.

Tier 1 tickets: $40 Museum members, PBO or Cappella Romana subscribers; $45 non-members.

Tier 2: $30 Museum members, PBO or Cappella Romana subscribers; $35 non-members.
