- Antonio Vivaldi
Volume XXI - RRP £10.00 + p&p
Vivaldi was the most prolific
of composers and very popular during his lifetime. J.S. Bach was
fascinated by his energy and transcribed several of his compositions.
Todaywe are captivated by his rhythmic vitality and descriptive creativity,
most notably in his Four Seasons for violin and orchestra. I transcribed
this beautiful Sonata from a Trio which was originally written for
violin, lute and basso continuo. I found the Trio in 1961 when I
was studying in Paris.
