About the album

Villa Vivaldi

Joy, despair, love, hate, exuberance: in Vivaldi’s music, the outermost extremes of emotion connect within the smallest of spaces. Leaping over genres, “Villa Vivaldi” palpably, audibly, and movingly links Antonio Vivaldi’s virtuoso instrumental concerti to modern commissioned works that were written specifically for this program: “traité des passions” by Moritz Eggert and the title piece “Villa Vivaldi” by Mark Scheibe. “Verve and perfection… a magnificent debut from Volcania!”

Gerd Klingeberg, Weser Kurier

Ensemble Volcania

Every moment on stage can be made into magic: this is Ensemble Volcania’s core belief. The international musician-adventurers of the ensemble led by Elisabeth Champollion and Franciska Anna Hajdu find glamor, heat, and joy in the scores of Vivaldi, Bach and other past masters – and commission compelling new music from living composers, whose works draw on the intensity of baroque passions using the musical language of today. In its work, the ensemble places connection in the foreground: that of the musicians to the music, potentially leading to a different musical result each evening; and of the musicians to the audience, sparking the unique excitement of live performance.

Composer(s)

Antonio Vivaldi

Antonio Lucio Vivaldi was an Italian Baroque composer, virtuoso violinist, teacher and cleric. Born in Venice, he is recognised as one of the greatest Baroque composers, and his influence during his lifetime was widespread across Europe. He composed many instrumental concertos, for the violin and a variety of other instruments, as well as sacred choral works and more than forty operas. His best-known work is a series of violin concertos known as The Four Seasons. Many of his compositions were written for the female music ensemble of the Ospedale della Pietà, a home for abandoned children where Vivaldi (who had been ordained as a Catholic priest) was employed from 1703 to 1715 and from 1723 to 1740.

Vivaldi also had some success with expensive stagings of his operas in Venice, Mantua and Vienna. After meeting the Emperor Charles VI, Vivaldi moved to Vienna, hoping for preferment. However, the Emperor died soon after Vivaldi's arrival, and Vivaldi himself died less than a year later in poverty.
