Juditha Triumphans

Saturday January 18, 2014 at 8 PM
The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts Bourgie Concert Hall
1339 Sherbrooke St. West
Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Ensemble Caprice and the Arte Musica Foundation present Vivaldi’s magnificent Juditha Triumphans to close the Museum of Fine Art’s Splendore a Venezia exhibition. This concert will feature a performance of the complete work, one of the few oratorios composed by Antonio Vivaldi. Juditha Triumphans depicts the biblical story of Judith’s battle to free the besieged city of Bethulia. This composition for female choir by the “Red Priest” is a masterpiece of sacred music and figures among the artistic high points of the 18th century.

Ensemble Caprice Orchestra and Women’s Choir in collaboration with the Arte Musica Foundation

This concert celebrates the 60th anniversary of CAMMAC.
