Originally scored for two horns, strings and cembalo, this piece by Baroque favorite Antonio Vivaldi has been defitly adapted for concert band by noted composer and arranger, John Cacavas. By changing the horn parts to cornet and skillfully dividing the melodic structures between the brass and woodwinds (for example, many of the repeated 16thnote passages in the flutes and clarinets have been dovetailed, resulting in a smoother performance that captures the feel of the original string parts), Mr. Cacavas has made this work highly accessible to today's concert bands. A wonderful way to bring the bright, clear sounds of the Baroque period to your concert hall!
