This production was recorded at the Teatro Malibran of La Fenice in Venice in occasion of the celebrations for the 3rd centenary of Galuppi’s birth. This is the first performance in modern times, and a World Premiere recording on DVD. The Orchestra Barocca di Venezia, conducted by baroque expert Andrea Marcon plays on original instruments from the 18th century. Olimpiade, was written for the opening of the carnival season of Milan’s Teatro Ducale on December 26, 1747… (http://www.arkivmusic.com)

"Despite the public context – the story is played out against the backdrop of the Olympic Games – this is a drama which focuses on the personal predicaments of the principal characters, each of whom faces an interesting conflict between head and heart somewhere along the line. This is more apparent from Metastasio's words than from Vivaldi's music, to be honest, but that isn't to say that the composer has been unresponsive. The most effective and intimate moments occur in the recitatives, which are fluidly conversational and full of realistic interruptions, questions and exclamations, all of which Vivaldi handles with considerable dramatic skill. Rinaldo Alessandrini's direction is typically unfussy and to the point, ever alert to the music's dramatic intent but without imposing himself on it unduly. The finest vocal performances come from Sara Mingardo, Roberta Invernizzi and Sonia Prina, but in truth no one is a weak link. The recitatives are effectively done, the arias thrown off with dash and aplomb, and everyone sounds as if they believe in the work.” (The Gramophone)

With Olimpiade the famous poet Metastasio created one of the most popular librettos of the 18th century. It was set to music by over 60 baroque and classical composers including Vivaldi, Caldara, Hasse, Cimarosa and Donizetti. Pergolesi’s composition from 1735 was one of the earliest adaptations…

Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (4 March 1678 – 28 July 1741), nicknamed il Prete Rosso ("The Red Priest") because of his red hair, was an Italian Baroque composer, Catholic priest, and virtuoso violinist, born in Venice. Recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, his influence during his lifetime was widespread over Europe. Vivaldi is known mainly for composing instrumental concertos, especially for the violin, as well as sacred choral works and over forty operas. His best known work is a series of violin concertos known as The Four Seasons.

We owe the rediscovery of Pergolesi's 1735 opera about the Olympics not so much to the build-up to next year's games in London, but to the composer's tercentenary in 2010. It's a long work (four hours), and even by 18th-century standards, its narrative is convoluted. The athlete Magacle is competing – and cheating – in the games to win, on behalf of his friend Licida, the hand of Aristea, which her idiotic father has promised to the victor. Megacle has fallen in love with Aristea himself, however, and things are further complicated by the arrival of Licida's cast-off mistress Argene, and by the revelation that Licida is actually Aristea's long-lost twin brother…

Good as the Concerto Italiano recording of this opera is, for once it's not the best. This older live recording by the Clemencic Consort is truly of Olympian quality, chiefly because of the singers: the incomparable Gerard Lesne as Licida above all, and then Mieke von der Sluis singing just as well as Lesne, and Aris Christoffelis as Aminta. This is an opera featuring some uniquely imaginative duets, sharing among those three singers, whose expressiveness is unmatched. One of the keys to making a CD of a baroque opera enjoyable is the intensity of affect in the long accompanied recitativos, and these singers do exactly that. They sparkle with drama. Let me not slight the masculine voices, either; they rumble and thunder most artfully. And there's a bassoon out there in the orchestra pit who's not too bad, playing one of the craftiest bassoon parts in all of Vivaldi.

Early-music pioneers Charivari Agréable perform an engaging collection of overtures from Italian Baroque Opera, best described by Kah-Ming Ng as being “lucidly crafted for the purpose of turning heads”. In a decadent era when the antics of theatre-goers were often as intriguing as the performances taking place on stage, these works were composed with the express intention of thrilling, beguiling and engaging an often hard-to-impress audience.

The revival of Vivaldi's operas continues with L'incoronazione di Dario (The Coronation of Darius), which has been recorded several times. This release comes from a 2013 live performance in Bremen, Germany, very well recorded indeed by Naïve. The title might lead one to expect a solemn opera seria, but it almost immediately announces itself, with a sparkling duet as the first vocal number, as something different and unusual, a sort of dramedy about the competition for the hand of the daughter of a deceased Persian emperor. A worthwhile and even entertaining addition to a Baroque opera shelf.

Disque passé plutôt inaperçu et qui régalera les vivaldiens. Comme, d'ailleurs, tout ce que font les Arte dell'Arco (et leurs deux solistes Guglielmo).On y retrouve la veine "parodique" du maître, ce qui veut dire qu'il n'hésite pas à recycler parfois ce qu'il a déjà utilisé dans une autre oeuvre (ici, on dira sur un mouvement, tiens! les 4 saisons). Son grand admirateur, un certain Jean-Sébastien Bach (non, ce n'est pas un musicien techno), retiendra la leçon (tel thème de cantate repris dans la Messe en si, par exemple)…
