Tune of the Day: Largo by Vivaldi
Even if modern performance usually features a guitar as the solo instrument, this concerto was originally written for the lute. It was probably composed in the 1730s during a visit to Bohemia, but, as with Vivaldi's other lute works, it was not published during the composer's lifetime.
Today we present the central Largo, a slow, reflective meditation in the usual binary form.
Thanks to Phil for suggesting this beautiful piece!
