Announcing our New CD, 'Viva Vivaldi'

The Toccata-Tahoe Orchestra and Chorus is delighted to announce the Release of a new, jumbo-length CD. It features performances of works by Antonio Vivaldi, the "Red Priest" of Venice.

Performances date from 2015 through 2020, and they occurred at a number of different Reno-Tahoe area churches. Elizabeth Pitcairn plays the 'Winter' Concerto from Vivaldi's Four Seasons, and the Vivaldi Gloria in D Major is performed in it's entirety. The much-loved "Violin Concerto in A Minor" is also present, performed by Brune Macary.

A "Triple" Concerto in D minor is performed by Brune Macary and Virginia Bowman on Violin, and by Charles Taggert on Cello.

And, from a 2020 performance, The Concerto for 2 horns in F Major is performed by Bruce Kanzelmeyer and Kevin Miescke on French Horn. This also features Nick Haines, as Solo Cello, and David Brock, on Harpsichord Continuo.
