Why See Seattle Symphony - Vivaldi Gloria?
Vilvaldi's Lost Masterpiece
Vivaldi's Gloria is widely considered one of the composer's most important lost masterpieces. An exultant hymn, Gloria has become one of Vivaldi's most popular pieces in the centuries after his death and is performed all over the world. Created for the girls of a Catholic Orphanage, Gloria expresses the divine aspects of the violinist/composer/clergyman once known as "The Red Priest".
Lying undiscovered in a pile of his manuscripts until the 1920s Vivaldi's Gloria wasn't performed until 1939 in Sienna by composer Alfredo Casella. Although Casella changed a few sections of the original composition it quickly became a firm favourite among Vivaldi's fans. It wasn't till 1957 that the original and authentic piece was first heard by audiences.
