Written in Mantua in the late 1710s, these three wonderful concerti come from the great 'Il cimento dell' armonia e dell'inventione' ('The Contest between Harmony and Invention'), the famous set of concerti from which the well-known 'The Four Seasons' also came. Here Vivaldi addressed the battle between structured form and harmony, and the opposing forces of creative invention. And he succeeded admirably in combining a traditional fast-slow-fast format with tremendous invention, both in technique and in overall presentation. It was ‘program’ music in an era which was extremely unaccustomed to such an idea. These are inspired and classic works, standing more than comfortably with The Four Seasons as great classics of the Italian Baroque—and of all time. This deluxe 2CD set includes a slow-tempo practice version to help you get up to speed.

The Soloist is accompanied by an orchestra.
