Antonio Vivaldi: Salve Regina In G minor RV 618 With Christophe Dumaux
Sensible string starts
During his lifetime, Vivaldi achieved what would nowadays be referred to as “rockstar” levels of fame. He was adore throughout Europe. Even after his death, his popularity grew and his would sell out, wherever they were performed. The unison rhythm of the strings as they open this work gives a formal feel to the beginning of the music. Just before the voice enters, the strings part into polyphonic style and the singer is introduced in a more favourable and informal light. Does Vivaldi’s style rock you to this day?
