Vivaldi's women Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi is an all-female ensemble, based in Oxford, UK. It is based on the original Figlie di Coro, those foundlings at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice who performed at Mass and Vespers from behind grilles in the high choir galleries or Cantorie. The ensemble plays several selections of Vivaldi's sacred music. The last selection of the DVD is Peter Ackroyd's Venice, "Episode Three: The City as Music. Peter Ackroyd looks at how music has woven itself into the fabric of the city, and discovers, as he puts it, "the Venetians were infatuated with music". From the gondoliers famous for singing recitatives taken from the poetry of Tasso; to the famous Venetian serenades, sung beneath the ubiquitous balconies to the accompaniment of the mandolin or the guitar; to the modern-day musicians at the restaurants in Piazza san Marco, music is, and always has been, a way of life in Venice. As Ackroyd notes, a 1581 guide book referred to the city as 'the seat of music', while the inventories of middle-class Venetian households reveal the presence of string or keyboard instruments in most of them. Ackroyd explores how Venice's musical awakening really came about as the expansion of its empire drew to a close. Another form of supremacy was required and Venice became the home of the madrigal, the centre of church music and the capital of opera: European composers from Handel to Stravinsky flocked to the city: Wagner and Monteverdi even died there. But perhaps the composer who remains most synonymous with the city is Antonio Vivaldi. Ackroyd traces his life from his early days in the priesthood to his leadership of the Ospedale della Pieta, where he trained orphan girls to perform concerts that became the wonder of the age and notes the thoroughly Venetian rapidity of his execution: he boasted that he could "compose a concerto with all its parts faster than a copyist could copy it"--Http:// (as viewed on 9/22/2010)
