Vivaldi – Viola Concertante in A Minor



You get two for the price of one!

Yes, there are two versions:

Version 1 is like a concerto where the first player has the melody throughout and is accompanied by the others. So the first part would be for Moderate abilities upwards, and the remainder are all very easy.

Version 2 allows all the players to share the melodic interest equally, and so is entirely for Moderate abilities upwards.

And if you wish, both versions can also be for viola orchestra, and you may insert solos wherever you wish to make it into a concerto grosso – or concertante, indeed.

What a sound! 8 mins. E/M

P.S. I should mention that it was originally scored for solo flute and orchestra.
