Nel condurre alcune ricerche nell'archivio del vecchio Ospedale della Pietà di Venezia, Lucio, un giovane violinista spagnolo, si imbatte in una partitura che sembra di Vivaldi. Si tratta di un'opera inusuale, a tratti sgradevole e incomprensibile, saggio forse di quella "musica del diavolo" proibita severamente dalla chiesa del tempo. Da ulteriori ricerche Lucio viene a sapere dell'esistenza di una setta detta "Fraternitas Charitatis" che aveva lo scopo di custodire e tramandare conoscenze eterodosse o eretiche. Ben presto Lucio, con l'aiuto della fidanzata, scopre l'affiliazione di Vivaldi alla confraternita ed è indotto a pensare che la partitura nasconda un messaggio tanto importante quanto pericoloso che i due intendono scoprire. Ma non sono i soli…

Although Eric Clapton has released a bevy of live albums, none of them have ever quite captured the guitarist's raw energy and dazzling virtuosity. The double live album Just One Night may have gotten closer to that elusive goal than most of its predecessors, but it is still lacking in many ways…

What kind of music could be better suited for the Berliner Philharmoniker’s legendary annual Waldbühne concert than Czech music? It’s always passionate and full of verve and sure to lift everyone’s spirits. Only very rarely does a young talent ascend to ‘world stardom’, but one of the few who can be considered an international superstar while still belonging to the new generation of conductors is Yannick Nézet-Séguin. He presents the much-loved Vlatava (Moldau) as well as Dvořák’s Sixth Symphony and Violin Concerto with the wonderful Lisa Batiashvili on the violin.

This is not such a bizarre cross-over as one might imagine for in the 18th century the great Irish musician Turlough O’Carolan, a blind harpist, met the Italian musician Geminiani in Dublin, and through him encountered the music of, yes, guess who, Antonio Vivaldi. So here we have a case of substituting Irish instruments for baroque ones, using baroque instruments to accompany Irish themes, by creating dialogues between Celtic and baroque instruments, or by letting all the musicians improvise. One moment we appear to be listening to a ‘straight’ baroque concerto, then all of a sudden the conventional string continuo/ripieno of the baroque ensemble (Le Orfanelle della Pieta) gives way to celtic musicians playing a jig or reel on anything from a Irish bouzouki to a fiddle. The baroque group consists of three each of first and second violins, one viola, two cellos, a bass and harpsichord while the Irish musicians play Irish fiddle, an Irish flute (like a baroque flute), tin and low whistles, Uileann pipes, Irish bouzouki, mandolins, bodhran, bones, and the Celtic harp (played here with metal strings to resemble its harpsichord counterpart in the other group).
