Phoenix Choir Blue Mountains present two of Vivaldi’s best known choral works in a concert celebrating the great master composer of the Italian baroque.
Musical director Rowen Fox conducts the choir and a professional string ensemble led by the accomplished Kanimbla Quartet. These works combine dramatic choral fanfares with intricate solo movements, including duets for two soprano soloists and guest oboe soloist.
Vivaldi’s Gloria is one of the most popular works in the choral repertoire, in which joyous choruses such as the opening Gloria and the uplifting Domine Fili unigenite contrast with the pained chromaticism of Et in terra pax hominibus, and the beautiful soprano solo with oboe obbligato, Domine Deus, Rex coelestis. This work pairs wonderfully with the finely wrought Magnificat to give a feast of Vivaldi’s choral music in a program which will also include other Italian works of the period sung a capella by the Phoenix Chamber Choir.
