The Vivaldi Edition

The Vivaldi Edition, a recording venture conceived by the Italian musicologist Alberto Basso and the independent label Naïve, is one of the most ambitious recording projects of the twenty-first century. Its principle objective is to record the massive collection of Vivaldi autograph manuscripts perserved today in the Biblioteca Nazionale in Turin, some 450 works. Incredibly, this is the private library of scores Vivaldi had at home at the time of his death in Venice in 1741 and includes his extant operas, hundreds of concertos, sacred compositions and cantatas. Much of this music has not been heard since the 18th century.

The release of more than 100 CDs, which began in 2000, will extend over the next ten years. The Vivaldi Edition's goal is to make this extraordinary wealth of music available to the public and at the same time reveal the full genius of Vivaldi, not only as a composer of instrumental music, for which he was already known, but as the creator of some of the eighteenth century's most exhilarating vocal music. Beyond this the Vivaldi Edition is active promoting affiliated concerts in major festivals and concert series throughout Europe and in developing multimedia projects which bring together musicians, film-makers, authors, visual artists and others.

While Maria Bayo is probably today's leading interpreter of baroque zarzuela, Ms. Petibon is, in my opinion, still a really top-notch singer:





Sans frayeur dans ce bois (Chaconne) - Marc-Antoine Charpentier (1643-1704) ; Patricia Petibon ; La Cetra Barockorchester Basel directed by Andrea Marcon






Greensleeves to a ground - anon. (16th century England) ; Patricia Petibon, soprano ; La Cetra Barockorchester Basel directed by Andrea Marcon

Les Indes galantes (part 1) - Jean Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) ; various soloists ; Les Arts Florissants chorus and orchestra directed by William Christie





Les Indes galantes (part 2) - Jean Philippe Rameau (1683-1764) ; various soloists ; Les Arts Florissants chorus and orchestra directed by William Christie





Performed by at the Opéra National de Paris, 2004



Jean-Philippe Rameau - Les Indes Galantes - Opera Journal, 28 October 2010
http://filmjournal.net/keris9/2010/10/2 ... -galantes/


This splendid piece of Baroque musical theatre, one of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s earliest works from 1735, is quite different in form from what you would normally associate with familiar opera tradition. Instead of conforming to a typical classical or mythological storyline of early opera, with long arias and recitative, it operates instead within a structure of four separate but thematically linked “entrées” (with a prologue), colourful little tableaux vivants of love adventures in the exotic foreign lands of the “Amorous Indies” – Turkey, Peru, Persia and America.

The nature of those romantic adventures will certainly be the familiar opera tropes of classical figures and archetypes, with stories of love and forbidden passion enlivened by mistaken identities, cross-dressing and extraordinary coincidences. In addition however to the beautiful arias, duets and choral arrangements, once the little romantic complications are resolved, they are celebrated by grand choral arrangements and joyous ballet sections, all of it imaginatively and simply spectacularly staged like some big colourful cartoon.

The question of fidelity to the period doesn’t really come into it and is much less important than the spirit within which it is enacted. The staging certainly makes use of modern techniques, but is timeless and utterly faithful to the nature and intent of the pieces, which is simply to entertain and take pleasure in the beauty of the music, the singing and the playing of the characters. With William Christie and Les Arts Florissants at the helm for this remarkable production at the Paris Opéra in 2004, and an exceptional cast, Les Indes Galantes certainly does that. It’s an absolute marvel, a delightful entertainment on so many levels, inventive and visually dazzling, filled with wonderful rhythmic music that will take your breath away. Really, the rediscovery of this wonderful piece and the efforts put into its revival can’t be praised highly enough.
