Vivaldi's operas have been rediscovered in recent years to be thrilling vocal showpieces, championed by Cecilia Bartoli, Ewa Podles, and many others. This new edition was produced by Ricordi in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi of Venice. With extensive introductory historical articles. Includes arias from Orlando furioso, Arsilda, La fida ninfa, and Tito Manlio.
“These two volumes of operatic arias represent the recent scholarship that is uncovering the immense treasures of Vivaldi's theater music...there are simple arias with short ranges and slow tempos as well as elaborate, highly ornamented arias suitable for the most extravagantly skilled virtuoso...these volumes, and ones that are sure to come for other voice types, are well worth adding to the collection of every music library.”--Journal of Singing
