Σαν σήμερα, 4 Μαρτίου 1678 γεννήθηκε στη Βενετία ο Αντόνιο Βιβάλντι, ένας από τους σημαντικότερους εκπρόσωπους του ιταλικού μπαρόκ, συνθέτης οργανικής κυρίως μουσικής αλλά και θρησκευτικών έργων και μεγάλου αριθμού από όπερες, το ενδιαφέρον για τις οποίες ανανεώθηκε πρόσφατα.
Από τη συλλογή κονσέρτων του La Stravaganza ακούμε το κονσέρτο Νο 9 σε τρία μέρη. Την ορχήστρα Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields διευθύνει ο Neville Mariner. Carmel Kaine: βιολί.
Ακούμε επίσης την άρια “Zeffiretti, che sussurrate”, από μη σωζόμενη όπερα. Ερμηνεύει η έξοχη Cecilia Bartoli [φωτό].

On this date, 4 March 1678, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice. He is one of the most important representatives of the Italian baroque, composer of organic music but also religious works and a large number of operas, the interest for which was recently renewed. From his collection of concerts La Stravaganza we chose Concert No 9. The Academy Of Saint Martin In The Fields is conducted by Neville Mariner. Carmel Kaine: violin.
We also pick the aria “Zeffiretti, che sussurrate” from a non surviving opera. It is performed by the impeccable Cecilia Bartoli [photo].

…and one from me:

Concerto for two mandolins in G major RV 532

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!

  1. Mandolins…who knew! What a delightful listen for me today. Each time the piece returned to the classical orchestra, I was disappointed 🙂 Many of the selections you and your husband share simply brighten my day. Thanks for sharing your eclectic and excellent tastes in music!

    • Awwww, thank you so much, Mary Jo! Isn’t it though?! I remember listening to this piece [for 2 mandolins] when I was a small child and loving it… I didn’t know then what a mandolin was but I loved their sweet sound so much! 😘
