The Artists

Concerto Köln

Shunske Sato, violin

Known for its electrifying performances, Germany’s Concerto Köln conjures Vivaldi’s spring birdsongs, summer storms, fiery harvest festivities, and unsettling winter winds. Violinist Shunske Sato leads these “early-music subversives” (New York Times) in a period-instrument performance shedding new light on these best-loved Baroque concertos.

“This is Vivaldi for those who go beyond limits.” Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung (Germany)
“Fresh, vigorous playing… A superb period instrument band.” New York Times
“Remarkable precision and zest.” New York Times on Concerto Köln
“[Sato] carried the whole three movements off with amazing élan, power and accuracy, often with a dash of humour, prompting a standing ovation.” Daily Telegraph (Australia)
