Antonio Stom – La partenza del Bucintoro (detail)
The Baroque Music Foundation is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to recognize and give greater exposure to the many unknown musical works from the 17th and 18th centuries that make up a part of our extraordinary Western musical heritage. To this end we organize, produce and support opportunities which bring this music alive for the benefit of audiences today, from performances to recordings, research and publications.
Currently, the Foundation is concentrating on helping fund and disseminate knowledge of the Vivaldi Edition recording project (Naïve records) as it nears completion. Sixty-four cds have been released to date, of which eighteen are operas, all performed by eminent musicians specialized in Baroque music. The project, which has garnered international visibility and won innumerable awards, is expected to be completed by 2028, year of the anniversary of the birth of Antonio Vivaldi.
