What happens when one of the greatest violinists of our times joins forces with the Camerata on period instruments? An adrenalin-charged evening with an Italian baroque flavour...
 
Performing in Greece for the first time, Fabio Biondi will be bringing his unique artistry to bear on the magical era of Sammartini, Vivaldi, Hassel, Corelli and Geminiani in works whose virtuosity takes your breath away and whose lyricism and sensibility stops your heart; works for strings bearing the signature of the great Italian violinist’s highly personal (and sometimes eccentric) readings.
 
He will be joined by the Greek mezzo-soprano, Mary-Ellen Nesi, an artist who lights up the international stage with her beautiful voice and the quality of her performances, in Vivaldi’s superlative cantata “Amor hai vinto”.
