Peninsula Summer Music Festival is excited to invite some of the cream of the past 2 years PSMF Academy to showcase their exciting new projects.
‘Bin 1728‘, a collaboration of Academy Orchestra graduates and Baroque performance practitioners brings to you Vivaldi’s finest vintages of the festival. The infectious zest from Vivaldi’s Concerto for Strings coupled with bucolic harmonies of ‘Il Gardellino’ is sure to impress. The finish is rich, soft and clean – and satisfying.
