    Default Vivaldi? "Vivaldi, Antonio -- Violin Concerto No. 6 in A minor: II. Largo (2:10)" ?

    This is a piece I downloaded years ago, and I've wondered ever since if it was mislabeled. It's short and simple, but I still find it beautiful.

    The info on it says "Vivaldi, Antonio -- Violin Concerto No. 6 in A minor: II. Largo (2:10), The Very Best of Vivaldi." This could be completely wrong!

    The Amazon listing for "The Very Best of Vivaldi" does not contain it -- unless it's part of a longer piece there?

    I'd be very appreciative if anyone can identify it. Thank you in advance.

    Default Thank you!!! :-)

    Thank you so much! It's been years that I was looking for that. Very much appreciated!

    L’Estro Armonico, Op. 3, Concerto No. 6 in A minor for violin and strings, RV 356:
    Allegro
    Largo [the piece I attached]
    Presto
    First Publication 1711 (in L'estro armonico)
    Piece Style Baroque
    Instrumentation violin + strings, continuo

    Vivaldi scholar Michael Talbot wrote that the works are "perhaps the most influential collection of instrumental music to appear during the whole of the eighteenth century".


    Really, I'm very appreciative.

    Really? That sounds a little exaggerated. I mean I do like winter and some of his religious works like Gloria and Stabat Mater but the rest just sounds like to me as if he just wrote the same piece four hundred times. And what about Mozart? I thought his piano concertos alone are considered the height of Western civilization (okay maybe I am exaggerating here too ;-) ).
