VIVALDI & THE SOPRANO

Performing at Seraphic Fire-St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral (Mar 20 - Mar 20)


Synopsis

During his time as the maestro of music at the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, Antonio Vivaldi wrote many of his most extraordinary works for the young women in residence there. These compositions revolutionized the Baroque cantata, a style that contains some of the most dramatic and virtuosic pieces ever written for the human voice. The musicians of the Firebird Chamber Orchestra are joined by critically-acclaimed soprano Kathryn Mueller for an exciting program celebrating the female voice.

Seraphic Fire-St. Sophia Greek Orthodox Cathedral

Entering into their 15th season performing throughout South Florida and on national tours, Seraphic Fire is regarded as one of the preeminent professional vocal ensembles in the United States. Led by Founder and Artistic Director Patrick Dupré Quigley, Seraphic Fire brings top ensemble singers and instrumentalists from around the country to perform repertoire ranging from Gregorian chant and Baroque masterpieces, to Mahler and newly commissioned works by this country’s leading composers. Two of the ensemble’s recordings, Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem and A Seraphic Fire Christmas, were nominated for 2012 GRAMMY® awards, making Seraphic Fire the only choral ensemble in North or South America to be nominated that year, and the only classical ensemble in the world to be nominated for two separate projects.

During its 15th Anniversary, Seraphic Fire puts South Florida at the center of artistic innovation with eight new world-premiere choral works by established and emerging American composers. The season also features appearances with The Cleveland Orchestra, collaborations with GRAMMY®-winning organist Nathan Laube and violinist Matthew Albert, and a guest appearance by conductor Elena Sharkova.

Recognized as “one of the best excuses for living in Miami” (el Nuevo Herald) because of its “vivid, sensitive performances” (The Washington Post), Seraphic Fire’s artistic accomplishments have translated to chart-topping album sales. The ensemble’s September 2014 release, Reincarnations: A Century of American Choral Music, soared to No. 6 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart and the ensemble’s GRAMMY®-nominated recording of Brahms: Ein Deutsches Requiem debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Traditional Classical Chart.

Seraphic Fire has a partnership with Naxos of America for the distribution of Seraphic Fire Media.
