Concertos, sinfonia al Santo Sepolcro, Vivaldi Magnificat, Sinfonia and Miserere de Hasse
With Maîtrise de Radio-France under Sofi Jeannin
After having explored the secular and sacred Neapolitan music, we are currently working on vocal and instrumental pieces composed by Vivaldi for the residents of the Ospedale de la Pietà a subject of fascination to all visitors of the Serenissima, from Charles Burney to Jean-Jacques Rousseau.
The Venice Ospedale Della Pietà was supposed to provide assistance to illegitimate daughters and assure access to general education as well as to a high-quality musical education.
Every night, the young girls ‘choir would accompany the litanies to the Blessed Virgin, the prayers commissioned by the faithful as well as the masses and vespers of Sundays.
The young virtuosos, very ably advised by professionals of each instruments, had an equal voice and would sing with a tenor voice transposed into their musical mood, thus to achieve a perfect balance of the vocal ensemble. We are building our Venetian program with these versions.
