Of Note

The Vivaldi is part of a collection of concertos he entitled The Harmonic Inspiration, considered “perhaps the most influential collection of instrumental music to appear during the whole of the eighteenth century.”

If you like the lush, romantic sound of Brahms and Sibelius, but also the driving rhythm of bluegrass, you’ll love the Seyfried Double Concerto.
