Vivaldi: Church and Stage - Baroque Series

A lesser known side of Vivaldi—master of vocal music for church and stage—resounds in this alternately devout and dramatic showcase, featuring the radiant mezzo-soprano Avery Amereau. In Nisi Dominus, a dramatic setting of Psalm 126, Vivaldi ranges over a vast emotional and spiritual terrain, infused with warmth by the resonantly stringed star of the early baroque, the viola d’amore. The Sinfonia from La veritá in cimento and the Trio Sonata in D Minor—part of Vivaldi’s very first published opus—balance out the vocal fireworks, followed by a pastiche of arias from Vivaldi’s rarely heard operas, of which only a precious few survive.
