The concluding Allegro from Vivaldi's Concerto in D Major for solo violin and strings, RV 212. Alan Youssefian, baroque violin, with the award winning Early Music Ensemble Voices of Music. Live, 4K ultra high definition video from the main stage of the 2018 Berkeley Early Music Festival. This extraordinary work was composed circa 1712 and is one of only a handful of concertos that includes Vivaldi's original cadenzas. For this performance, Voices of Music prepared a new edition of the work from the original manuscripts: the dedication on the Pisandel ms. reads "fatto per la solennità della S. Lingua di St Antonio in Padua." The inscription most likely refers to the celebrations held at the basilica of St. Anthony (see Talbot, "The Vivaldi Compendium").

This work is here presented for the first time in 4K video. A native of New Jersey, Alana
