Virtually all of Vivaldi's existing manuscripts are currently on display at the Biblioteca Nazionale of Turin, and to celebrate this remarkable exhibition the Baroque octet L'Archicembalo gave a special performance at the newly opened Auditorium Vivaldi at the Biblioteca Nazionale of seven Vivaldi concertos with many of the original manuscripts projected on a screen behind the ensemble.
