Gelido in ogni vena — Farnace (Vivaldi)

‘Gelido in ogni vena’ was originally composed by Leonardo Vinci in 1724, for his opera Farnace. Vivaldi later changed the music and put it in his own opera. Handel did the same thing.

 

A very dramatic performance of this piece is with Italian mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli. This is the version composed by Vivaldi.
