Andante from Vivaldi's mandolin concerto. [RV 532]


Recommended Posts

After doing an attempt of that cheerful fist movement of Vivaldi's [2 mandolins concerto; RV 532] it has proved too tempting not to try out the following  movement [Andante].

It is a wonderfully evocative piece, with a timeless quality about it, and a sense of mystery, with those triplets in the phrasing taking precedence over the melody. Even though originally meant for those delightful instruments with a more limited sustaining ability; Mandolins.. [lots of short notes] never the less I believe it sounds fine on other instruments too.
