Supporting the Vivaldi Edition

Antonio Stom – La partenza del Bucintoro (detail)


The Baroque Music Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization whose purpose is to give greater exposure to the wealth of unknown music by Antonio Vivaldi and other 17th and 18th century composers, music that is 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 sponsoring a number of Baroque orchestras involved in Naive record’s Vivaldi Edition recording project and in promoting this exceptional venture. Sixty-four cds have been released to date, of which eighteen are operas, all performed by eminent musicians specialized in this repertoire.  It is expected that the project will be completed by 2028, the 350th anniversary of the birth of Antonio Vivaldi. Over the past twenty years the project has received international recognition and been the recipient of many awards, among them Gramophone Awards, BBC Music Magazine awards and numerous Diapason d’Or awards.
