Christmas Concert | Vocal and Strumental Ensemble Continuum | Luigi Azzolini Conductor


In collaboration with Settimane Barocche di Brescia.

Vivaldi’s Gloria is one of his most brilliant composition. It concentrates his main processes of writing and it offers a vision of how Italian religious music could have been in XVIII century, particularly in Venice. Freer in its conception, it marks a rebirth of vocal composition influenced by Opera and it offers to singers numeour possibilities to show their vocal virtuosism. Almost contemporay to Vivaldi’s Gloria, Dixit Dominus was composed by Georg Friedrich Händel during his first trip in Rome in 1707. The psalm is divided in nine short musical movements, alternating parts for solists groups, choir, strings and continuo; the composer manages to blend the Italian style, where solists parts do not hide the Opera mark, and counterpointistic writing, which Händel claims a great mastery on thanks to his Germany studies. The programme offers the occasion to enjoy in a single night two of the most beautiful sacred pages of Baroque repertoire.
