Despite the harsh dictum of Igor Stravinsky, who considered Vivaldi the composer of a work repeated hundreds of times, the Venetian’s reputation has been reinstated in recent years. His best-known solo concerto output (represented here with a program), is now being added to with works from other less-visited chamber repertories, a selection of which are presented in this series. There are few arguments more convincing about the merit of Vivaldi’s works than the interest they sparked in Bach, who masterfully transcribed several of his works for the harpsichord.
