Vivaldi and the Women of the Pieta: Documentary

Labels: ,

This documentary deals with Vivaldi's creative relationship with the girls of the Ospedale della Pietà for whom he composed so much music.

Musicologists often blithely ignore the fact that Vivaldi wrote a lot of his music specifically for all woman and girl orchestras and choirs. I've never understood why this should be so difficult to grasp but apparently it is.
