About the album

In 18th c. Venice, Christmas celebrations were part of the city's famous Carnevale, which lasted almost six months. We know that much of the Christmas festivities involved music, but very little of the actual repertoire has been identified. Together with the soloists Ruby Hughes and Komalé Akakpo, Martin Gester and Arte dei Suonatori have constructed a colorful program of music that we either know or can easily conjecture was played during a typical Venetian Christmas. Works by J. A. Hasse and three first-time recordings of Vivaldi, arr. by Olivier Fourès feature here.
