ANTONIO VIVALDI : LA STRAVAGANZA No 9 / ZEFFIRETTI CHE SUSSURRATE

Σαν σήμερα, 4 Μαρτίου 1678 γεννήθηκε στη Βενετία ο Αντόνιο Βιβάλντι, ένας από τους σημαντικότερους εκπρόσωπους του ιταλικού μπαρόκ, συνθέτης οργανικής κυρίως μουσικής αλλά και θρησκευτικών έργων και μεγάλου αριθμού από όπερες, το ενδιαφέρον για τις οποίες ανανεώθηκε πρόσφατα.
Από τη συλλογή κονσέρτων του La Stravaganza ακούμε το κονσέρτο Νο 9 σε τρία μέρη. Την ορχήστρα Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields διευθύνει ο Neville Mariner. Carmel Kaine: βιολί.
Ακούμε επίσης την άρια “Zeffiretti, che sussurrate”, από μη σωζόμενη όπερα. Ερμηνεύει η έξοχη Cecilia Bartoli [φωτό].

On this date, 4 March 1678, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice. He is one of the most important representatives of the Italian baroque, composer of organic music but also religious works and a large number of operas, the interest for which was recently renewed. From his collection of concerts La Stravaganza we chose Concert No 9. The Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields is conducted by Neville Mariner. Carmel Kaine: violin.
We also pick the aria “Zeffiretti, che sussurrate” from a non surviving  opera. It is performed by the impeccable Cecilia Bartoli [photo].

    I’ve heard of Vivaldi, a lot. This is my first listening experience. The last piece with Cecilia Bartoli singing is wonderful! She’s a soprano, right?

      Mezzo-soprano, she has a wide range, a very special timbre and unlimited powers of expression. She is a totally “spaced out” person – Marina and I are huge fans! Thanks a lot!
