Trio Sonata in D minor 'Variations on La Folia', RV63
EnglishFranšaisDeutschEspa˝ol

The Venetian Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741) was one of several composers who emulated Corelli. A comparison of his single-movement ‘Folia’ sonata (published as Op 1 No 12 in 1705) with the older master’s reveals many similarities, especially in the choice of virtuosic figurations. Naturally, Vivaldi takes advantage of the extra violin to engage in exciting imitative play.
