A program of Italian masterpieces by famous composers like Vivaldi, as well as music of Bononcini, Besozzi, and Veracini, whose works deserve greater exposure. Veracini came from a large family of musicians, was considered a hot-head, survived a shipwreck, and twenty years ago had an asteroid named for him.
