The British Baroque ensemble La Serenissima in rehearsal from the vantage point of violist Jim O’Toole.

This video is posted to YouTube with the following description:

‘Here’s what playing Vivaldi concertos can sometimes be like for the viola section (courtesy of viola cam – Jim O’Toole). This was 1030 in the morning and the first take of the day. We particularly like the fact that Jim completely misses his entry at one point. Nice one Jim, you’re a true pro! We’d also like to point out that our Artistic Director is talking to the basses about ‘funk’ at the very end, not something else… You can help us release this expert piece of viola artistry by supporting our March crowdfunding campaign on Global Giving.’
