For your summer's eve contemplation under the stars, longtime L.A. Philharmonic associate conductor and big fan fave Nicholas McGegan batons a program of Vivaldi works spanning the style of the late Italian Baroque. The Pacific Chorale, as well as sopranos Sherezade Panthaki and Justine Aronson, join the Phil in the best-known version of the Gloria, a very old piece of music composed as early as 1715 and whose words possibly date from the fourth century. Also on the program: the impossibly beautiful Stabat Mater, featuring the excellent countertenor Tim Mead, and the Violin Concerto in G major and the Violin Concerto in A minor.
