    Default Very hard question on identifying Vivaldi piece.

    Ok, I don't know if it was mislabeled or what, but according to the flyer for the concert,
    the Christmas Concert at this URL:

    http://www.edepot.com/music.html

    Shows song number 4 as Vivaldi: Concerto for Violin and Clarinet, 1st movement.
    HOWEVER, Vivaldi only made 3 pieces of music for clarinet right?
    RV556
    RV559
    RV560

    I found them at wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...ntonio_Vivaldi

    However, when I hear all three of those pieces (on youtube) they sound nothing like the one at the URL above.
    So is this a LONG lost Vivaldi clarinet piece? Was the description of the piece changed? (like substituting an instrument for the clarinet, but the original piece used another instrument?)

    If someone knows what piece it is I would appreciate it. Preferably a RV number or a link describing the piece.

    Also, if someone knows what are the subpieces in song 8) are, and what the Encore 1 and 2 songs are, as a bonus, I would like to know too. Thanks. Lastly, who wrote Song 11?

    That's one of the Vivaldi violin concerti in B flat major.

    Thanks! With your hints, I found it was actually a piece that had no clarinet in it, but this performance
    substituted in a Clarinet in there. The actual piece is:

    Vivaldi: Concerto for Violin and strings, 1st movement, Continuo in B-Flat Major. (RV364 / RV364a)

    Since you are so capable, can you identify these two pieces as well?

    Is the following piece actually called "The Best Christmas Wishes"? If Yes, who wrote it?

    Seconde encore is just an arangement of Pachelbel's canon for orchestra and chorus, I think.

    Yes, I didn't notice that. The second encore is just like the second song.

    Last one:

    I know it is a very famous song, but I don't know what it is called.
