The Venetian Vivaldi and the Styrian Fux, a pair of Baroque geniuses! Alfredo Bernardini loves them both and brings their music to sparkling life, performing with his baroque orchestra Zefiro.
Johann Joseph Fux: Serenade in C major, K 352, from “Concentus Musico-instrumentalis” / Concerto in D major, “Le dolcezze e l’amarezze della notte”, E 112 / Ouverture in G minor, K 359

Alfredo Bernardini and his splendid period ensemble Zefiro are famous all over the world for their stunning Vivaldi performances. It was only here in Graz, however, that they discovered the music of Johann Joseph Fux, the genius of Austrian baroque. Their latest programme is dedicated to the nocturnal concertos and dances of these two composers, a feast of sounds and rhythms, played with the irresistible Italian agility of Zefiro.
