The program, featuring Jonathan Godfrey on violin, will showcase concertos from the likes of Antonio Vivaldi and Arcangelo Corelli, and will also include some more obscure works by Pietro Locatelli. Locatelli is a fairly mysterious artist often seen as the bridge between Corelli and Vivaldi who is best known for the L’arte del violino, a collection of pieces that -allow talented violinists plenty of room in the capricci to solo and shine. Mercury will be performing “Concerto No. 1 in D Major” from that work.
