This disc is an invitation to explore one of the great attractions of Venice in the Baroque era, the famous ospedali. Among the inmates of the Pietà was a girl named ‘Pellegrina’, for whom Vivaldi wrote many of his oboe concertos. With her Berlin colleagues, Xenia Löffler breathes new life into these concerti soli, concerti ripieno and sinfonie by the ‘Red-haired Priest’ – but also by his emulators, among them a composer of today, no less fervent in his admiration: Uri Rom.

Ce disque vous invite au cœur d’une des grandes attractions vénitiennes de l’époque baroque, les fameux ospedali. Parmi les pensionnaires de la Pietà, vécut une certaine “Pellegrina”, à qui Vivaldi destina nombre de ses concertos pour hautbois. Avec ses collègues berlinois, Xenia Löffler fait revivre ces concerti soli, concerti ripieni et autres sinfonie du prêtre roux – mais aussi de ses émules, parmi lesquels figure un compositeur d’aujourd’hui tout aussi fervent : Uri Rom.

Diese CD entführt uns in eine der größten Attraktionen im Venedig des Barockzeitalters, die berühmten Ospedali. Unter den Internatsschülern des Ospedale della Pietà befand sich auch ein Mädchen namens „Pellegrina“, für die Vivaldi viele seiner Oboenkonzerte schrieb. Xenia Löffler hat nun zusammen mit ihren Berliner Kollegen diesen Concerti soli, Concerti ripieno und Sinfonie des „Roten Priesters“ neues Leben eingehaucht – aber auch seinen Nachfolgern, unter ihnen ein ebenso glühender Bewunderer aus unseren Tagen: der Komponist Uri Rom.
