Cello Concerto in E-flat major, RV 788 (incomplete, dedicated to Teresa) Cello Concerto in D major, RV Anh.145 (RV 404) (unauthentic) Cello Concerto in G major, RV Anh.146 (RV 415) (unauthentic) Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) composed his violin concerto for two violins, Op. One infers that he had a good working knowledge of the instrument, since he writes for it with such expertise. We do not know exactly who the cellists among these were (one concerto, RV399, is inscribed enigmatically to a ‘Monsieur S…h’, who must have been a non-Italian), but they certainly existed. 3, No. They must be approximately contemporary with the celebrated collection of concertos published in 1711 as Vivaldi’s Op 3 and entitled L’estro armonico. However, its style is so uncharacteristic of the composer, beyond the most basic specifications, that questions have arisen. 10/2, RV433 "La Tempesta di Mare" Antonio Vivaldi: Flute Concerto in G minor, Op. Antonio Vivaldi is not only Venice's most famous son, but also one of the most prolific composers of the baroque period. In all probability, this was composed for the Pietà during the 1720s. Concerto for Two Trumpets in C Major, double concerto for trumpets and strings by Antonio Vivaldi, one of the few solo works of the early 1700s to feature brass instruments. After all, it comes from the Wiesentheid collection, which contains several clearly authentic sonatas and concertos by the composer. RV416 and RV420 survive in copies made by Franz Horneck, a German musician who visited Venice in the winter of 1708–09. His wonderful concertos cover all the main instruments of the his period but few people know that Vivaldi wrote more concertos for solo cello than anyone else in history. These numbers don’t even reflect the select cello solos in his orchestral works nor chamber music such as a cello duet, violin and cello duet, and pieces for mixed trios and quartets. His ability on the violin was supreme and his playing on the viola d'amore evoked much praise but his cello forays were rare and discreet, and he never made a name as a cello virtuoso. We encounter here another instance of homotonality, which allows the work to retain to the end the feeling of subdued melancholy introduced right at the start. A noteworthy feature of the tempestuous finale is that it has five, rather than the more usual four, ritornellos—exemplifying what we’ve said about Vivaldi’s early style. The lyrical passages in the fast outer movements of his concertos in fact prefigure the ‘singing Allegro’ style of the Classical period later in the same century. A mix-up is made more likely by the fact that Wiesentheid folders usually reproduce the wording of the enclosed manuscript’s title very closely. 12 (Vivaldi) Antonio Vivaldi wrote many concertos for violin, strings and basso continuo Op.

Jonathan Cohen is a young British cellist, rapidly developing a versatile reputation for sensitive and accomplished performance across a range of genres. Moreover, he had an unrivalled feeling for the ‘soul’ of the cello, its capacity to express both hilarity and pathos.

Between 1723 and 1729 Vivaldi, who was no longer an employee of the Pietà, kept it supplied with new concertos at the rate of two per month under special contract.

These works employ both a three-movement cycle and clear (if diminutive) ritornello form, like that of the ripieno concerto except that sections for the soloist and continuo separate the orchestral ritornellos. One infers this from the fact that bibliographical features such as paper type link it to three other cello concertos: RV410, 414 and 419. I wanted a space to celebrate them and inspire them as we create a cello community at the Grace Notes School of Music. Hyperion offers both CDs, and downloads in a number of formats. Vivaldi left only one ‘double’ concerto for cellos: RV531 in G minor. The composer, who was himself a virtuoso violinist, wrote hundreds of concerti for the violin but relatively few for four To make the slow movement of a concerto indistinguishable from a slow movement in a sonata for the same instrument was an option frequently taken by Vivaldi in mid-career. In addition, the Conservatorio di Musica ‘Benedetto Marcello’, likewise in Venice, possesses a substantial amount of the Pietà’s musical archive, although, sadly, most of the music survives only in fragmentary form and cannot be reconstructed satisfactorily. Antonio Vivaldi: Double Trumpet Concerto in C major Antonio Vivaldi: Flute Concerto in F major, Op. An interesting detail is that the slow movement, instead of moving to a contrasting key, remains in the tonic, G minor. I find myself unusually involved by this release, in several respects, and I recommend it to your attention … the cello seems to have inspired him to write some of his deepest music—and I am not speaking registrally. The term “concerto” was initially used to denote works involving voices and instruments in which the instruments had independent parts—as opposed to the Renaissance common practice in which the instruments that accompanied voices only doubled the voice parts.Examples of this earlier form of concerto include Giovanni Gabrieli’s “In Ecclesiis” or Heinrich Schütz’s “Saul, Saul, was verfolgst du mich.” They keep me constantly laughing and motivated to grow as a musician and educator. The description ‘Siciliana’ is not used by Vivaldi as a heading for concerto movements in a slow 12/8 metre. (If the modern reader is surprised by their longevity, it should be pointed out that the Pietà looked after the health of its residents well, with doctors on the payroll.) The earliest known solo concertos [citation needed] are nos. Accompaniment is provided by Robert King and The King’s Consort, acknowledged leaders in the interpretation of Vivaldi. Antonio Vivaldi was one of the first composers to feature the cello, then a relatively “new” instrument (after the viola da gamba), as a mature solo instrument. It's a fine disc. In Vivaldi’s autograph manuscripts the reduction of triple-metre time signatures to ‘3’ is observable only from the early 1720s. Solo parts for cello in concertos go right back to the origins of the genre in northern Italy in the last decades of the seventeenth century. However, there is a possibility that Horneck, when copying, introduced the simplified time signature of his own volition: it is certainly true that this form was at the time more current in Germany and France than in Italy. The site is also available in several languages. RV401, 417 and 418 belong to the heyday of Vivaldi’s concerto-composing career: the 1720s.

Welcome to Hyperion Records, an independent British classical label devoted to presenting high-quality recordings of music of all styles and from all periods from the twelfth century to the twenty-first.

Lastly, this recording presents a curiosity: a cello concerto in G major, RV415. In all probability, this was composed for the Pietà during the 1720s.

The high status enjoyed by the cello at the Pietà is shown by the fact that briefly in 1720–21 it employed the famous cellist Antonio Vandini (c1690–1778) as its teacher of stringed instruments, the ever-absent Vivaldi having ceased to be a member of its salaried staff. Vivaldi's only concerto for the unusual combination of two cellos was probably, like so many of his concertos, written for the all-girl orchestra of the Ospedale della Pietà in Venice, with which he was associated for some four decades.The tone color of the paired cellos and the minor key help to account for the relatively somber sound of the work.

William Walton’s Concerto written in 1956 was commissioned by and written for Gregor Piatigorsky.A very short introduction, a matter of a few bars, and the cello enters with a lyrical impressionistic sounding melody, punctuated by the flutes, celeste, harp and vibraphone, which rarely appear in cello concerti.

In addition, he taught an instrument named the viola inglese, which recent research has identified as the viol. The initial stimulus towards Vivaldi’s composition of cello concertos was doubtless his activity, from 1703 onwards, as director of instrumental music at the Ospedale della Pietà, Venice’s famous home for abandoned children. The agreement was certainly honoured on both sides, since payments relating to almost 150 concertos are recorded in the institution’s accounts. Horneck was in the service of Johann Philipp Franz von Schönborn, whose brother, Rudolf Franz Erwein, was a keen amateur cellist, as the very numerous sonatas and concertos for the instrument surviving in the private library of the Schönborn family in the castle of Wiesentheid (Unterfranken) demonstrate.
