Natalia Pavlova and Ensemble Opus Posth (Academy of Early music) would love to share with you online concert, that was recorded in Philarmonic of Moscow (Rachmaninov's hall of Moscow State Conservatory).
In the program called BAROCCO A VENEZIA some treasures from  repertories of Baroque  music from Friuli region of Italy (Venice),  pieces of Antonio Cesti, Bartolomeo Cordans, Antonio Vivaldi.
Opus Posth Ensemble is a first russian Baroque orchestra, specializing on ancient and contemporary music, directed by great violinist Tatiana Grindenko.

What's the music?

Antonio Cesti "Intorno all'idol mio" (Orontea)
Bartolomeo Cordans "Hostes avernis" (in 3 parts)
Antonio Vivaldi "Nulla in mundo"
(in 3 parts)

Translation on English, full program :
Cesti, Orontea's aria.
Around my Love,
let's be air sweet and grateful
And in the elected cheeks
Kiss him for me - airs,
To my resting Love,
The flags of the quiet,
Grateful grateful dreams assist,
And my enclosed ardor
Reveal him for me....

Cordans "Hostes avernis"
1. Presto
Ravine of hell ,come forward,
I fight you,
I fight infernal might with grace and righteousness

2.Recitativo :Let the dangers rise, I will not despair, I firmly believe that everything is protected by the sky, and by the God.So I win with God's power and glory!

O friendly Rose, you grow in the field to comfort my pain.
also inconsolable fear gives way to hope in prayer

RV 630, Vivaldi "Nulla in mundo"
1. Aria
In this world there is no honest peace
free from bitterness. It lies in You,
sweet Jesus, pure and true.
Amid pains and torments
lives the soul, happy only
with hope of chaste love.

  1. Recitative.
    By tempting look this world deceives the eye,
    but pierces hearts by hidden wounds.
    Let us flee him who smiles, shun him who follows us,
    for by skilfully displaying its pleasures, this world
    overwhelms us by deceit.

  2. Aria
    The serpent hisses
    among blossoms and colours,
    uncoils itself and conceals the gall,
    But after a furtive kiss,
    a man maddened by love
    often licks it like honey.
