Europa Galante - Concert at The Library of Congress


Founded by the brilliant violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, Italy’s Europa Galante is one of the world’s most admired period performance ensembles, particularly known for masterly performances of the music of Antonio Vivaldi. The concert highlights two of his dazzlingly imaginative Concerti dell’ Addio, the Farewell Concertos written in the final year of his life, and works by Venetian and Viennese contemporaries who may have influenced him.

Organized by The Library of Congress, in in collaboration with the Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute, this concert honors Nicholas Longworth, former Speaker of the House, 1925-1931. A gifted violinist with a love for music of the Italian Baroque, he served as president of the Friends of Music at the Library of Congress.
