NightScenesOn Wed. Nov. 13, 7pm at The Italian Academy (at Columbia University) composer Robert Honstein teams up with the acclaimed young Baroque ensemble, The Sebastians for a concert interleaving old and new, day and night.

Vivaldi’s ebullient and innovative L’estro Armonico is paired with a new suite, Night Scenes from the Ospedale, commissioned from Honstein by The Sebastians in 2011. Night Scenes evokes a night-time walk through a Venetian refuge for orphaned girls, the Ospedale della Pieta, where Vivaldi taught, wrote and worked.

The concert, which is FREE, will begin with a reading by the poet Sarah Arvio from her 2013 book, “Night Thoughts.”
