San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970

Vinaccesi Ensemble

Very few of seventeenth century Venetian Benedetto Vinaccesis masterworks have survived through the centuries. Yet his eight extant solo cantatas show him to be a stylish, inventive, and exciting composer. Come hear the Vinaccesi Ensemble perform selected cantatas by their namesake before recording all eight later this year, with the support of a grant from the San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music’s Musical Grant
