In this oratorio, Vivaldi depicts the dramatic story of Judith slaying Holofernes through expressive arias, rousing martial choruses, and some of the most colorful instrumental writing of the Baroque era. The score includes instruments like the chalumeau (a clarinet predecessor), theorbos (huge lutes), a consort of viole all’inglese, as well as recorders, viola d’amore, and more—all entrusted to the Venice Baroque Orchestra, an ensemble The Washington Post praised for “percolating energy and lithe, silvery tone.”
