Concerto for flute, oboe, violin, bassoon and continuo in G minor, RV107
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
The obbligato parts in the Concerto in G minor, RV107, for flute, oboe, violin, bassoon and continuo are fairly evenly spread though with a slight emphasis on virtuoso violin figures in the initial movement. The Largo, in the rhythm of a siciliano, also occurs in Vivaldi’s Concerto in B flat for oboe and violin, RV548. The lyrical melody is shared between flute and oboe whilst violin and bassoon provide an accompaniment; the effect is one of Arcadian enchantment. The work concludes with a chaconne built upon an eight-bar ostinato bass. The sequence of variations is imaginatively handled by Vivaldi who introduces several virtuoso flourishes to the instrumental writing. This effective and somewhat haunting music possesses, perhaps, a mildly poignant character.
