From Cal Performances: Scottish violin star Nicola Benedetti joins the virtuosic Venice Baroque Orchestra for a concert of work by Venice’s brilliant native son, Vivaldi. His beloved The Four Seasons showcases the rhythmic vitality and overflowing personality of this accomplished chamber group, blended with Benedetti’s pure and gleaming tone. “They play with the freedom of rock or jazz musicians, and a sensibility that’s distinctively urban” (The Boston Globe).
