"La Primavera" (Spring), from the Four Seasons. Voices of Music, Alana Youssefian, baroque violin. The second movement is here presented in 4K, ultra high definition video, performed on original instruments. For this video, a new edition was prepared from the original sources, prints and manuscripts for Vivaldi's music. In preparing this performing edition, we made the musicological decision that the indication for mutes in the Allegro ("con Sordine") for the violins is misplaced in the original print (there is no indication in the Manchester part books), and the mutes should be in the Largo (and, joyfully, not in the final movement). The mutes now provide a textural fence between the violas and the soloist. Here is our new version, with the slow movement performed on muted ripieno violins. Special thanks to Michael Talbot. #Vivaldi #Spring #FourSeasons
