Vivaldi: Concerto In A Minor For 2 Violins, RV 523 – 2. Larghetto E Spiritoso

Vivaldi is what sparked the fire in me to want to learn the violin. I love that he wrote most of his music during the time he oversaw the Ospedale della Pietà (an orphanage) in Venice. While the boys learned a trade craft, the girls learned music. The most talented became members of the Ospedale’s celebrated orchestra and choir. It’s not hard to imagine the dainty trills and soaring melodies being performed by an army of sweet little baby girls.

Tonight I played this piece out of the Antologia Violinistica: 18 Composizioni. Violin and Piano.
