"Groups like Il Giardino Armonico, Europa Galante and Concerto Italiano shook up the Baroque world with fiery interpretations, less concerned with fidelity to the score than making those notes leap off the page. Founded in 1997, the Venice Baroque Orchestra swiftly joined those illustrious ranks and their contributions this evening were lusty and invigorating.... In the brief Sinfonia in G major, there were hints of the heat haze and buzzing fireflies of Vivaldi’s Summer from The Four Seasons, the VBO’s muscular attack full of vigour."
