Magnificent festivities attracted aristocratic families, as well as artists from all over Europe. All entertainments turned around divertissement Les Quatre Saisons by Johann Christophe Schmidt (1664–1728), music composed in the French style that reminded glance of divertissements performed at the Royal court of Louis XIV in Versailles.

Antonio VIVALDI – La Senna festeggiante RV 693

Antonio VIVALDI – La Senna festeggiante RV 693

Italian serenatas which oscillates between cantata and opera have been composed for particular celebration of high political or social importance. They have been performed at the end of the day.

Vivaldi's La Senna Festeffiante has been created between ca. 1722 and 1725 to honor French king Louis XIV but the premiere was most probably performed in Italy. The piece has two parts and is based on alegoric text by Domenico Lalli where The Golden age, The Virtue and Seina figures. 

River Seina welcomes The Virtue and The Golden Age on its bank. Those two are coming to king coronation to Versailles and all three personages then celebrate king's character – his mercy, righteousness and religiousness.

I Penitenti al Sepolchro del Redentore 
ZWV 63 (1736)


jan-dismas-zelenka-i-penitenti-al-sepolchro-del-redentore

Oratorio I Penitent al Sepolchro del Redentore was premiered on March 30th, 1736. As one of the later Zelenka's works, it contains unique musical language, similar to Missa Votiva ZWV 18 (1739), piece of the same period.

We can hardly find anyone among his contemporaries who took advantage of string orchestra in similar way. Typical characteristic of Zelenka's pieces of this period is his ambition to experiment and to define limits of "the conceivable".
