The musicians of Les Violons du Roy give a conductor-less performance of a selection of magnificent concertos and sinfonias by the great Vivaldi.

Les Violons du Roy takes its name from the celebrated court orchestra of the French kings. It was founded in 1984 by conductor Bernard Labadie, and continues under music director Jonathan Cohan to explore the nearly boundless repertoire of music for chamber orchestra in performances matched as closely as possible to the period of each work’s composition. Its minimum fifteen-member complement plays modern instruments, albeit with period bows for Baroque and Classical music, and its interpretations are deeply informed by the latest research on seventeenth- and eighteenth-century performance practice. The repertoire of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries receives similar attention and figures regularly on the orchestra’s programs.
