Program Notes

The Concerto Grosso in D Minor is one of Vivaldi’s best- known works. Published first in 1712 as a concerto for two violins, cello, and string orchestra, the work was transcribed for organ by J.S. Bach and considered one of his original compositions for several generations. Bach studied Vivaldi’s music assiduously, transcribing three of his string concertos for organ and three for harpsichord. The Concerto Grosso in D Minor opens with an allegro-adagio-allegro, continues with a largo, and concludes with a busy allegro.
