Voices of Music presents "La Follia: A Baroque Pageant", HD video of the performance of Vivaldi's variations on "La Follia" (RV 63), choreographed and danced by baroque dancers Robin Gilbert and Carlos Fittante. In 1705, eager to make his mark as a composer of both opera and instrumental music, the young Vivaldi published his first set of twelve trio sonatas as Opus 1. The last sonata, which is a highly virtuosic set of variations on the "La Follia" dance pattern (titled only "Follia" in the print), is one of his most famous works; Vivaldi takes Corelli's variations on the same theme-and-bass pattern from Corelli's Opus 5 (1700), which was already a famous work, and adds figuration of even greater complexity.
