Hard to believe, but "Juditha triumphans" is the only oratorio by the extremely productive Antonio Vivaldi. This is all the more astonishing as the "Prete Rosso" was closely connected throughout his life with the famous Ospedale della PietĂ  in Venice. The reputation of the former concerts in this orphanage for girls still echoes far beyond Venice. Vivaldi has written "Juditha triumphans" for the young musicians. So it is not surprising that the work is also only performed with female voices-and this also in the choir. In this live recording Roberto Zarpellon brings together young singers whose passion for melancholic and fiery music is audible in every note.
