              Program

              Juditha triumphans, composed to celebrate the victory of the Republic of Venice ‎over the Turks during the Siege of Corfu (resulting from the defeat of the Ottoman Army by ‎Austrian troops in the Battle of Petrovaradin on 5 August 1716), represents the peak of ‎Antonio Vivaldi’s vocal music oeuvre. This Sacrum militare oratorium is based on ‎the Book of Judith, with a libretto in Latin written by Iacopo Cassetti at the Ospedale della ‎Pietà in Venice, where the work was created and performed in autumn 1716. All the ‎characters, including the choir, were performed by female voices: Judith and her handmaid ‎Abra, Holofernes and his eunuch Vagaus, as well as Ozias, the High Priest of Bethulia. ‎‎Juditha triumphans, the only one of Vivaldi’s four oratorios to have survived to ‎this day, is striking for the extraordinary beauty of its arias and the intense choral ‎interventions, the drama of the recitatives and the surprising variety of timbre combinations ‎from the orchestral ensemble (in addition to the usual strings there are 5 violas da gamba, ‎the viola d’amore, 4 theorbos, a mandolin, piccolo, chalumeaux, oboes, trumpets, clarini and ‎timpani).‎
