Overview

BAROQUE MUSIC

The name La Venexiana is taken from an anonymous Renaissance comedy which counts as a masterpiece of Italian theatre for its use of language, a combination of literate Italian and dialect, and for its insightful rendering of society and manners. It was, in fact, a precursor of the commedia dell’arte. By taking on this name, La Venexiana attempts to convey in its musical interpretations all the theatricality, attention to language in all its subtlety, and celebration of contrasts between the refined and the popular, the sacred and profane that characterizes our culture today.
The members of La Venexiana are some of the most experienced European performers in the early music field, especially in the Italian Madrigal repertoire.

– Excerpts from Vivaldi’s operas: Catone in Utica, Ercole sul Termodonte, La Senna Festeggiante, Motezuma, Ottone in Villa, La Griselda, Orlando Furioso & L’Olimpiade
