Once again a memorable musical evening at the Concertgebouw here in Bruges. Il Giardino Armonico really really enjoy playing music and conductor Giovanni Antonini leads his musicians in a way that should also be seen to be fully appreciated. And when he played the flute concerto in F by Giuseppe Sammartini, he made most people forget they came to the concertgebouw mainly to hear Viktoria Mullova. But Viktoria Mullova certainly did not fail to captivate the audience. One of the pieces was the ‘Grosso Mogul’ violin concerto by Vivaldi. You can hear an excerpt of this by following this link. Bravo to all these musicians for a memorable evening (and thanks for the much appreciated encores)!
