In this selection from the second act of the Vivaldi Griselda, the titular character and her husband, Gualtiero, King of Thessaly's daughter Costanza sings about being tossed by contrary winds on the billowing seas. This work depicts Vivaldi's way of describing in music natural events, well-known in The Four Seasons, the best-known piece of music from Mr. Vivaldi.
This version of “Agitata da due venti” comes to us from Celia Bartoli from 2000. Enjoy! ◙
