Full score, Flute solo and String parts available as HM265.Antonio Vivaldi
(1678–1741) “was sprightly and highly inventive, and he filled almost half the world with his concertos” wrote Quantz in a brief appreciation of Vivaldi
a generation later. It was only by chance that this Flute Concerto In D
, which was preserved anonymously in Schwerin – truly half a world away from Venice –, has been identified as a composition by Vivaldi
. Easy to perform, this concerto radiates musical freshness and high spirits.
