Antonio Vivaldi had a peculiar fate in music: follwing a spectacular rise to European fame as a composer by the age of thirty-five, he was forgotten for more than a hundred years after his death. Initially, in the shadow of Johann Sebastian Bach, the red priest had only a modest resurrection, but close to a hundred years ago, following a search befitting a crime novel, two vast collections of manuscripts were discovered, which began the rebirth of his works. With about fifty concertos, ninety chamber works, forty-six operas and a large number of church compositions, his oeuvre still contains pieces to be (re)discovered.

At the concert, two days before the 342nd birthday of the Venetian master, Simplicissimus Chamber Ensemble will play Vivaldi's cantata which he wrote for two alto voices, as well as a concerto written for a violin without an E string and one written for the "violin of love" the viola d'amore. The soloist of the concert are promising young talents - opera singer Diána Ivett Kiss, a sponsoree of the Human Resources Young National Talent Program, and Petra Szovák, a student at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna - as well as featured artists such as Cecília Hatos and Junior Prima Award winner Máté Vizeli. The evening will be hosted by the artistic director of the Simplicissimus Chamber Ensemble, violinist and music historian Zsombor Németh.
