about

The Sebastians’ début album Night Scenes from the Ospedale pairs four thrilling Vivaldi concerti from L’Estro Armonico with newly composed “night” interludes by Robert Honstein (roberthonstein.com). In these companion pieces Honstein imagines “Night Scenes” from the Ospedale della Pietà where Vivaldi worked as performer, composer, and teacher. These evocative interludes comprise “a kind of music barely heard, melting into the stillness of empty rooms and dimly lit hallways” and exist in stark juxtaposition with the bold, exuberant Vivaldi concerti.
