Antonio Vivaldi

Flute Concerto, for flute, strings & continuo in G major, Op. 10/6, RV 437

    Description by Aaron Rabushka

    This is one of the three non-programmatic selections from Vivaldi's collection of flute concertos that comprise his opus 10. The opening Allegro begins with a happy, attention-grabbing unison that features some catchy octave jumps. The rest of the movement keeps to the same mood as the tutti and solo sections alternate. In the subsequent Largo the flute plays a contemplative, somewhat concerned cantilena over an accompaniment filled with mildly restless repeated notes. The concluding Allegro also features a repeated-note accompaniment with virtuosic flute figurations that fall over themselves for joy.
