Evening Masterwork: Antonio Vivaldi's Gloria for December 22, 2022

Vivaldi’s setting of the Gloria has been a long-time favorite in modern times, especially around the Holiday season. He likely composed the work in 1716 as a way of celebrating the victory against the Turks by Vienna and other allies and it’s a wonderfully sunny work, with distinctive melodies and rhythms. Vivaldi’s Gloria, our Evening Masterwork tonight at 7 on Classical WSMR 89.1 and 103.9.
