Gloria in D major, RV589

Lauda, Jerusalem, RV609


Since 1987, the year he founded Le Concert Spirituel, Hervé Niquet has been a major figure in musical life, but he is also an actor in a class of his own. Major because it is thanks to his love of French music, the grands motets, large forms, and works both known and less known, that we have discovered or rediscovered treasures by Campra, Boismortier, Charpentier, Lully, Handel, Striggio, Offenbach, Grétry... Major because he is respected and loved by a great number of singers and stage directors with whom he has collaborated... And in a class of his own because he has an uncommon (or even unique, in the current musical landscape!) capacity for sharing his music directly with the audience.

Alpha is delighted to welcome this great, ‘total’ artist to begin a long-term collaboration and release the fruit of his latest research, his wishes, his discoveries and his follies. In addition to the Don Quichotte concocted with his accomplices Shirley & Dino, the festivities begin in Venice, with Vivaldi’ s deservedly famous Gloria and Magnificat, but in a version that we are not accustomed to hearing: ‘We have lots of things to discover in these works that we thought we knew,’ says an enthusiastic Hervé Niquet. ‘We propose a version of this «sausage» that is never heard. It’s the original version, the one that Vivaldi had written for the Ospedale in Venice.’

The Ospedale della Pietà is the orphanage where Vivaldi was hired in 1703 as a violin teacher then later, maestro de’ concerti. Being a girls’ orphanage, the original version of the Gloria was written for two women’s choirs and two small orchestras, forces that could take their place in the organ loft of the establishment’s church. ‘Afterwards, to make some money, he created a version for four mixed voices,’ relates Hervé Niquet. It is this version, with tenors and basses, that is well known. In the original version, ‘with the tenor lines sung by the sopranos, the melodic line is completely different. We don’t recognize it. And the solos sung in chapel by the six altos together, sounds completely different. In this version, there is fantastic work on the women’s voices. We have been performing this on tour for four years, and there is no habit, no routine. Every reprise, every «refresher» is absolutely fascinating. A nice feeling, nice sentiments, this is jubilant music. Vivaldi is, after all, a very good composer...’

Vivaldi’s Magnificat and Gloria were both composed for the Ospedale della Pietà, a Venetian orphanage for young women, who, in the words of the French scholar Charles de Brosses, could “sing like angels and play the violin, the flute, the organ, the oboe, the cello, the bassoon.” In this recording Riccardo Muti builds superb Baroque edifices with the forces of the New Philharmonia and two glorious mezzo-sopranos, Tereza Berganza and Lucia Valentini Terrani.

“Given well-upholstered forces spearheaded by a pair of operatic big guns, Verdi tends to win out over Vivaldi in Muti's expansively sculpted readings.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2015 **

Award winning, world renowned conductor, Rinaldo Alessandrini with his stunning period-instrument ensemble, Concerto Italiano – about to celebrate its 25th anniversary – perform two Glorias by Vivaldi. It’s their first major release for the Vivaldi Edition since 2004. The all-star soloist line-up is headed by contralto Sara Mingardo, “one of the richest voices before the public today” (Gramophone, July 2009). Don’t miss the stunning “Domine Deus Agnus Dei” from Gloria RV589.The recording presents two major sacred works by Vivaldi: the celebrated Gloria RV589 and the much rarer RV588. The recording also features a work recorded only four times in recording history: the ‘Ostro Picta’ introduction, that Rinaldo has chosen to associate with the Gloria RV589.

“Both versions of this evergreen vocal masterpiece are stylish and deeply felt. Common to both is the affecting singing of contralto Sara Mingardo; her 'Domine Deus Agnus Dei' is poignantly declaimed.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2009 ****

“...the performance is an even and expressive one – it runs at a cracking pace, too – and worth listening to alone for solos by Sara Mingardo, whose rich yet light voice is perfect for this music...a performance that celebrates the rich drama and excitement of Vivaldi while maintaining a lightness of touch throughout.” Katie Greening, bbc.co.uk, 22nd October 2009

“Rinaldo Alessandrini's 1997 recording of Vivaldi's most famous Gloria, RV589 (6/98) was wildly acclaimed in some quarters… This new performance… still sets off at a brisker pace than most but it is no longer wilfully madcap: the articulate playing of Concerto Italiano permits enough room for the details to emerge, and Alessandrini nowadays seems to have enough confidence in his musicians (and in Vivaldi) to let the muscular expression of rhythms function without impatient snapping at the musical fabric. Another notable improvement from 1997 in his plangent choir. "Laudamus te" crackles with energy... Concerto Italiano also delivers a zesty performance of Vivaldi's less famous Gloria setting (RV588). ...Mingardo is at her best in the heartfelt "Qui sedes", and Alessandrini's spirited direction is irresistible.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2010

“the soloists Sara Mingardo and Emma Kirkby, under the direction of Rinaldo Alessandrini, are pretty glorious” David Smith, Presto Classical, 2nd May 2014
