Het doet mij goed om te zien dat mijn collega Alex Timmerman inmiddels ook zijn weg naar Youtube heeft gevonden.
Bij bovenstaande video:
Antonio Vivaldi's (Venezia 1678 - Vienna 1741) CONCERTO (RV 93/F.XII n.15) 'con 2 Violini, Leuto, e Basso'
consists of three movements; the work starts off with a lively opening ALLEGRO and a slow but very charming LARGO followed by a fast ALLEGRO to close with.
As the title mentions this composition was originally composed for a lute accompanied by 2 violins and an unspecified bass.
Today it is known and mostly heard as a concerto for guitar and chamber orchestra. Here it is performed by the Dutch Mandolin Chamber Orchestra HET CONSORT with the orchestras conductor Alex Timmerman as the soloist performing the lute part on guitar.
Thanks go to mr. Gerard Godlieb who shot the video during a concert of the orchestra in the Netherlands in 1995.
