Movement 3: Allegro

Violin Concerto in F minor 'Winter', RV297
Allegro non molto
Shivering, frozen, amid icy snow,
at the harsh wind’s chilling breath;
to run, stamping one’s icy feet,
teeth chattering in the bitter chill;

Largo
to rest contentedly by the fireside
while the rain outside drenches a hundred others;

Allegro
to tread on ice, with slow steps,
moving cautiously in fear of falling;
to go fast, slip, and fall to the ground,
to hasten onwards across the ice and run fast
until the ice cracks and breaks open;
to hear, as they go through the iron-clad gates,
Sirocco, Boreas, and all the winds at war.
This is winter, but of a kind that brings delight.
