An Evening of Antonio Vivaldi

Performed by the Vivaldi Project, lead by Elizabeth Field
The Vivaldi Project is dedicated to presenting truly dramatic performances of 18th Century ensemble music on period instruments by presenting familiar works in new ways: sharing anecdotes about the composer and the piece, collaborating with other artists including actors and dancers, adding extra performance elements that give the audience a real insight into music they thought they knew.

Kaori UEMURA, Viola da gamba

After studying at the Tokyo Conservatory, where she received a degree in viola da gamba performance, she honed her musicianship in Europe under Wieland Kuijken at the Conservatoire Royal de Bruxelles. (There, she was awarded the first prize in 1984 and was granted a graduate degree in 1987.) She has performed in numerous concerts and for multiple recordings in Europe and Japan, notably with the ensembles "Ricercar" and "Le Poème Harmonique" as well as in duo with Jerôme Hantaï and Wieland Kuijken. She is also a member of "Tokyo Baroque" and the viol ensemble "Orlando Gibbons."

Jérôme HANTAï, Viola da gamba

Jerome Hantaï studied viola da gamba with Wieland Kuijken at the Royal Conservatory in Brussels, where he was awarded a Premier Prix in 1984 At the same time he also took a keen interest in early keyboard instruments, in particular the fortepiano. As a concert artist he played under the direction of Jean-Claude Malgoire, René Jacobs and Sigiswald Kuijken. Greatly in demand as a soloist, Jerome Hantaï nevertheless devotes much of his time to teaching and to chamber music: he has taught at the Conservatoire in Cergy-Pontoise since 1988.

He and his brothers Marc and Pierre form the Trio Hantaï. His recordings, whether on the viol or the fortepiano, have been received with unanimous enthousiasm by the critics; last issues: John Jenkins, consort music, with the Ensemble Jerome Hantaï (Naïve) Joseph Haydn, six sonatas (Ambroisie)


Born on the butte of Montmartre in Paris, Freddy Eichelberger began to play music at a very early age, studying organ with Odile Bailleux and harpsichord with Blandine Verlet.

He decided to pursue music professionally, entering the Lille Conservatory of Music where he worked with Jean Boyer and Noëlle Spieth (regional prize in 1988). Returning to Paris, he was a founding member of several music groups, among the most important of today's French early music ensembles.

Since then, improvisation has been an important part of his musical activity, leading him to play with all kinds of musicians, from serpent and tuba player Michel Godard to thegreat Indian singer Kishori Amonkar during an unforgettable week in Mumbai.

In addition, he was very involved in musical theatre, particularly with the director-actress-singer Sophie Boulin at the "Péniche Opéra" in Paris. He is fortunate to have played and taught on five continents, and has recorded more than 30 discs both solo and in good company.

Currently, besides a sort of 'homecoming' on his first instrument, the pipe organ, he plays mainly with the violinist Odile Edouard, in duo or in the ensemble "Sine titulo," and "Les Witches," continuing their exploration of Elisabethan tavern, theatre, and court music.

He is taking care of a series of monthly concerts at the Bastille reformed church in Paris, the goal of which is nothing less than the performance of the complete catalog of J. S. Bach's cantatas, a task which will occupy them until June 2022 ...
