Antonio Vivaldi: The Lord said unto my Lord

Antonio Vivaldi

The Lord said unto my Lord

RV 594

Description

Dixit Dominus (Ps 109), a psalm setting for double choir, is one of Vivaldi’s most significant sacred works. In it, he takes up the old Venetian polychoral tradition, combining its compositional techniques with those of the instrumental concerto, the cantata and the opera. The broadly conceived cycle of movements, consisting of eight psalm verses and the doxology, is characterized by an expansive arch of tonalities connecting the two framing outer movements in D major (these are also thematically related): "Dixit Dominus" and "Gloria Patri." The contrasting and varied inner movements are perfect examples of Vivaldi’s skill in vividly portraying linguistic figures in music.

Reviews

Zur Ergänzung der Beschreibung dieses Werks ... sei erwähnt, dass die feine Sopran- Arie „De torrente“, in der die wellige, melodische Kurve der Violinen (die so gut den Gesang des Baches imitiert) vom Sopran übernommen wird und so eine Reihe von Vokalisen bildet, die die Flexibilität der Stimme fordern. Das abschließende „Sicut erat“ im principio mit reichem Kontrapunkt ist auch eine gute Gesangsübung für alle Stimmen. Diese im Jahr 1978 erschienene Partitur ist wegen der ästhetischen und praktischen Aspekte des Formats und der Notation sehr zu loben.
