Vivaldi’s swan song: L’ORACOLO with Fabio Biondi in world premiere recording It is a true baroque thriller: Antonio Vivaldi, once the celebrated son of his home city of Venice, fell victim to an intrigue and tried his luck at opera in Vienna. In vain he tried to get his last opera “L’Oracolo” performed there. Fabio Biondi, probably the most distinguished Vivaldi specialist of our time, presented the work with great success at the 20th Vienna Festival “Resonanzen” in 2012. The world premiere recording of the Vienna version is now available again on CD.
