Music For The Soul #4: Vivaldi, Vedrò con mio diletto

Listening to this piece really caught my attention up!

The sensitivity of the strings ensemble, and the timbre of the contra tenor (countertenor), oooh, sounding so pure!

Vedrò con mio diletto could be translated to 'I will see with joy'.

It's one movement from"Il Giustino", an opera by Vivaldi to a libretto by Nicolò Beregan, composed in Rome, 1724.

This Aria is popular to be sung by contra tenor, a male classical singer who sings in the range of a female contralto or mezzo-soprano. What is unique about contra tenor is the timbre / colour of the voice :)

And also, if you like strings ensemble, take a closer attention to the strings. So raw but very refined at the same time; I'm not really sure how to put it into words to describe.



This series of "Music for the soul" is one of my hedonistic ways to enjoy my life: Good music with my tea / coffee.

Many music these days are very compressed, condensed, high pitched / so much treble, & poorly-organised. And many lead our feelings to become so unsettled, anxious, or even depressed.

Let yourself be immersed in this beautiful music; most are classical music (some won't be classical music; we're all learning how to appreciate every good music around us, either in our usual way or not).

Get your tea / coffee, sit in your sofa / bed, put headphones on, close your eyes, and just enjoy! :)

I always say Music is the supplement for human's soul.

Good music creates good soul.


Artist: Philippe Jaroussky (contra tenor), Ensemble Matheus, Jean-Christophe Spinosi (Conductor)
