MRT lecturer Richard Wigmore interviewed about Vivaldi in Venice Music Festival

posted on 23/06/17

BBC Radio 3 presenter and music journalist Richard Wigmore was recently interviewed by Classic FM South Africa’s Tamara LePine-Williams about Martin Randall Travel’s forthcoming music festival, Vivaldi in Venice.

Richard describes MRT’s inaugural Vivaldi in Venice Music Festival (6–11 November 2017), and the logistics of organising an event of such size amidst the canals of Venice. He also mentions the festival package; with guided walks, unlimited vaporetto trips and more all included.

Later in the interview Richard profiles Vivaldi, describing how he became an anomaly – a Baroque composer whose greatness was recognised within his own lifetime. His most celebrated works such as The Four Seasons enchanted European audiences, and gentlemen undertaking their Grand Tour were often known to stop by in Venice to purchase Vivaldi manuscripts, along with Canaletto paintings.
