The Glories of Venice

Online Access


The concert will be available at 7.30pm on Thursday 3 September, and for 30 days following.

A portrait of Venice in the Baroque period, with a performance of Vivaldi’s Gloria sung by an all-female vocal ensemble, just as in Vivaldi’s first performance at the Ospedale della Pietà. The concert also features one of the many solo vocal introductions he composed for the work, as well as madrigals by Barbara Strozzi, one of the most illustrious singers and composers of her time.
