Concerto for viola d'amore and lute in D minor, RV540
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
This serene movement, scored for the two soloists and one single line of violins, comes from a concerto which Vivaldi wrote specifically for a concert at the Pietà in Venice on 21 March 1740 for the Crown Prince of Saxony-Poland. It is likely that the d’amore soloist was Anna Maria, one of Vivaldi’s most famous and versatile students. He included her initials in the title, styled ‘per viola d’AMore’.
