Movement 3: Presto

Violin Concerto in G minor 'Summer', RV315
Allegro non molto
Beneath the harsh sun’s heat
men and flocks languish and the pine tree burns;
the cuckoo’s unleashes its voice and, as soon as it is heard,
the turtle dove and goldfinch join the chorus.
Sweet Zephyrus blows, but Boreas quarrels with his neighbour;
and the shepherd weeps, fearful of the violent storm, and what may lie ahead;

Adagio
the fear of the lightning and the thunder’s roar,
and the gnats and flies that buzz furiously,
deprive his fatigued limbs of rest.

Presto
Alas, his worst fears were warranted.
The thunder roars, the sky flares, and hailstones
sever the heads of the proudly standing corn.
