Eighteenth-century Italy was a vibrant source of musical inspiration. Nicholas Kraemer leads the orchestra in a colorful program showcasing the genius of the Italian Baroque—and our own principal players—including Marcello’s gorgeous Concerto for oboe and Vivaldi’s triumphant Concerto for 2 trumpets. Concertos for 2 and 3 violins by J. S. Bach show just how far—and how loudly—Italian influence resonated. Monday, November 25, 2019 7:30 PM Harris Theater, Chicago 205 E.
