This month, the Vivaldi Project, along with several concerts, has one of its most important events of the year: the Institute for Early Music on Modern Instruments. A select group of professional string players studies intensely for four days to learn a whole new way to think about, and play, music of the 18th century. The Vivaldi Project’s founder and director, violinist Elizabeth Field, gave Classical WETA’s Marilyn Cooley a look inside the Institute, including a quiz in which Marilyn had an “aha” moment about the practice of Baroque music.
