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.
