Vivaldi, Antonio - Largo and Presto from 'L'Estro Armonico'


Born in Venice, Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741), also known as Il Prete Rosso (The Red Priest), is widely recognised as one of the greatest baroque composers. Perhaps his most famous and iconic work is The Four Seasons , a collection of four violin concertos. Many of his compositions were written for the female music ensemble of the Ospedale della Pietà , a home for abandoned children.

L'Estro Armonico Op.3 (Harmonic Inspiration) is a collection of twelve concertos for 1, 2 and 4 violins written in 1711. In this arrangement Lorna McDonald has taken the Presto and Largo from the solo violin concerto in A, RV 356, Opus 3, No. 6 and it is featured on our third CD 'Enigma'. Scored for 3 tenors (tenor clef) and a bass trombone (bass clef).
