Larmore is a brilliant collaborator with the French period instrument group admired for meticulous research and virtuosic performances, in particular itsdefinitive recordings of Vivaldi.

Arias from Handel’s Giulio Cesare, Ariodante, and Rinaldo; Gluck’s Orphée et Eurydice; and Vivaldi’s Orlando furioso; along with Vivaldi Sinfonias and Concerto for Two Violins.

Please note: The ticket supply for this concert, via Ticketmaster, has been exhausted; however, there are often up to 80 empty seats available for "sold out" concerts at start time. Interested patrons are strongly encouraged to come to the Library by 6:30 p.m. on concert nights to join the standby line for no-show tickets.
