    Discovering Antonio Vivaldi and his Lost Music


    Thursday March 30 2023 10:30 am-15:00 pm
    Royal Antibes Hotel, 16, Boulevard Maréchal Leclerc - 06600 Antibes

    Susan Orlando, Artistic Director of the 'Vivaldi Edition' will present how this project came to be and how it has unfolded over the last 20 years. Susan has been presenting this story to numerous audiences worldwide. For those who love music this is a rare chance to know more about the music of this gifted composer.

    In 1930 the National Library in Turin purchased a collection of music manuscripts in the hand of the great Venetian composer, Antonio Vivaldi. The greater part of the collection, made up of no less than 450 works by Vivaldi - hundreds of concertos for various instruments and the only source we have of his sacred music and operas - had never been heard by today's public. Not until 2000 did this music finally resurface with the launching of the Vivaldi Edition, an ambitious recording project aimed at getting this trove of music to the public. To date there are no less than seventy CDs available and there remain but a few years to the project's completion.

    This talk will cover the intriguing story of how, upon Vivaldi's death, these music manuscripts made their way from his home in Venice to a palazzo in Genova and finally to Turin. Padding this subject will be much information about Vivaldi, from the famed all-girl's orchestra, with whom he worked all his life, to myriad details on his health, his career as an opera composer and much more.

    For more details on the Vivaldi Edition recordings and history visit the website: www.vivaldiedition.net. Apple Music, Spotify and Qobuz offer listeners a playlist comprised of over 4-hours of music from the Vivaldi Edition.

     After the talk lunch will be served the menu to be advised later

    Walking Tour of Old Nice

    Tuesday April 25 2023   10:00-12:30

    We will be taking on a walking tour of Old Nice by Jeanne Oliver.

    The walking tour will start at 10 am with us meeting at the Opera Vielle Ville tramstop. From here we will begin our walking tour finishing at Le Place Garibaldi.

    Jeanne will take us through the streets and lanes of the Vieille Ville, pointing out little-known sights and explaining how the old town developed. You'll hear the stories and legends that shaped Nice's unique culture and learn about the artists, architects, saints, heroes and sinners that shaped Nice's most vibrant neighborhood.

    The event is divided into two parts. The walking tour followed by lunch after at the restaurant Le Garibaldi.

    When signing up members will only pay for the walking tour. 

    If you also wish to stay on for lunch, then we need you to reserve for that too so that we can let the restaurant know numbers.

    Lunch must be reserved but it will be paid by members individually on the day and the menu will be your own choice. 
    While registering pick your choice of Ticket: Member Ticket -Tour only or Member Ticket Tour with Lunch.
