ANALYSIS AND REHEARSAL CONSIDERATIO ON ANTONIO VIVALDI’S GLORIA – RV 589


This report presents the biography of the composer Antonio Vivaldi, background of his composition Gloria, musical characteristics and analysis. Moreover, for a successful performance, rehearsal plans and techniques are also included. Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), one of the representative composers in Baroque period (1600-1750), wrote Gloria, in the early 18th century.


The composition date is still disputed between scholars. He composed three settings of the Gloria text: RV 588, 589 and 590. Out of them RV 589 is the most performed setting.


Gloria consists of twelve movements and orchestration of trumpet, oboe, strings, and continuo. Homophonic and polyphonic style is prevalent in this work.


In addition, focus should be placed on the harmonic suspensions, the flow of chromatic melodic lines and melismas.


For the recital, Chamber Singers consisted of 23 people who were the members of Concert Choir who have training focusing on clean and light tone with non-vibrato style.

VIVALDI: "Four Seasons" Sonnets texts in Italian & English

VIVALDI: "Four Seasons" Sonnets texts in Italian & English | To the ingenious "Red Priest" of Baroque | Scoop.it


As a descriptive basis for his Four Seasons, Vivaldi took four Sonnets, apparently written by himself. Each of the four sonnets is expressed in a concerto, which in turn is divided into three phrases or ideas, reflected in the three movements (fast-slow-fast) of each concerto.


The published scores (by Estienne Roger of Amsterdam in 1725) are marked to indicate which musical passages are representative of which verses of the sonnet.


It is advisable, at least during the first few hearings, to follow the sonnets and music together, for they are bound up with one another to an extent rarely heard in any other programmatic pieces either of the baroque period or subsequently.

Beginning in the late seventeenth century, Venice was home to four orphanages foryoung girls.


These institutions, the Ospedale della Pietà, Mendicanti, Incurabili, and Ospedaletto a St. Giovanni e Paolo, sought to raise the girls properly, and in doing so, music wasintegrated into the daily routine.


Girls in these conservatories had the opportunity to develop their musical talents and continue their success outside of the ospedali.


Musicians andcomposers, including Antonio Vivaldi, were hired as teachers and conductors of the ospedali’sperforming groups.


Thus, the Venetian Conservatories of the eighteenth century provided notonly a setting for the study of music, but a rich environment conducive to musical achievementof composers as well, an environment in which Antonio Vivaldi was inspired to compose workssuch as The Four Seasons for the flourishing talents of the girls at the ospedali...

Galliano takes the accordion to Vivaldi - lemag


Backstage in Paris euronews caught up with the celebrated musician Richard Galliano to discuss his love affair with the classical accordion...


"It might sound surprising but I've always played classical music on the accordion, since the age of 20, 21," he says, " but it's something very different to play on stage.


I was scared of, I guess what you would call, stage fright. Tonight, I did what I have been terrified of doing ever since I was 20 years old, and I played classical in concert.


My first idea was to play the music of Bach, because his style fits the easiest with the accordion. Sometimes I even feel as if Bach were written for the accordion.


I started by playing the solo part, that is usually played by the flute, the oboe, or the harpsichord. Then I turned to Vivaldi. This was because, even though Vivaldi is very difficult music to play, even on the violin, the accordion has great range."

Even so, how does Galliano feel Vivaldi or Bach would react to his interpretation?

"I'd like to think that it would please them because it is just another way of giving new meaning to their music. With music that's so well known, you have to take a risk to get the most out of it. You can't be scared to take it out of the comfort zone," he says.

The star also pays tribute to his mentor, Astor Piazolla, mixing his four seasons in tango, to chime with Vivaldi's classic.

"Astor Piazzola was influenced by Vivaldi, and developed the same structure in his tango pieces. Here, we find the same format, the same search for melody," insists Galliano.

Violin virtuoso Jean Marc Phillips Varjabedian is proud to say he was there at the birth of Galliano's current ensemble.

"It's been over 25 years since we first met. At the time I had a chamber orchestra, so I invited Richard to play some classical pieces with us. I think it was more or less his first experience doing this...I was a fan of Piazzola and we had the idea of creating a tango. So Richard started writing transcripts for a set.


And that's how this adventure began...There's always been a place for the accordion in classical music. Not least because the accordion was invented to replace the kind of small organ, which was played in private concerts. Its normal to play classical accordion in Russia, for example. In the West, we were a bit behind the Russians on this.


But I think its a good thing that a big star, like Richard, shows how well the accordion can work with Bach, or Vivaldi," says Varjabedian.

Galliano and his ensemble are currently playing their Vivaldi set as part of a world tour.

▶ A.Vivaldi - Motezuma - Teatro Comunale Ferrara


Dynamic is very proud to present this outstanding World Premiere Recording of a lesser known Vivaldi opera.


Motezuma is no typical baroque love opera but rather an historical work which depicts the destruction of a people and a culture by use of force and violence.


The contrast and the striking differences between the Aztecs and the Spanish are revealed in every detail, even in the body movements in the fighting scenes.


A victim of the Spanish, Motezuma turns out to be a violent and aggressive leader himself.


The stage set makes use of deep symbolical language: the main element on stage is the cross-shaped and blood-stained platform.


The use of colours and lighting is also intended to enhance the characters' complex personalities.


Conductor Alan Curtis needs no introduction, as he and his Complesso Barocco are among the most acclaimed international baroque ensembles.


Director Stefano Vizioli has got a degree in piano from the Conservatorio of Naples and has collaborated with famous contemporary artists and architects...
