The marvellous “golden octaves” by Ludovico Ariosto and his Orlando furioso undoubtedly hold an irresistible attraction for many composers (not only Vivaldi, but also Händel, Mayr, Lully), but perhaps it is the pages by the ‘red priest’ (debuted at Teatro Sant’Angelo in Venice in 1727) that best interpret the subject’s thrill and rhythmic tension, offering the perfect combination of the metric form of Furioso with the prosody of the score. Indeed, an invisible power seems to be moving the forests that the Ariostian warhorses are racing through, in the same manner that the lavish orchestration of the score does not seem to have a moment’s rest.
