The work, now listed as RV 816, is one of a pair of compositions discovered by Vivaldi expert Professor Michael Talbot in a volume of manuscript held in the Gerald Coke Handel Collection at the Foundling Museum. The work’s twin sonata, listed as RV 815, was premiered in Liverpool last year.

Elisabeth M. S de Pablo's curator insight, January 15, 2014 7:39 AM

Dans l'histoire des pratiques d'exécution musicale, les modes se succèdent et ne se ressemblent guère, tant elles sont nombreuses et imprévisibles. Au cours du XXe siècle, le phénomène le plus marquant dans ce domaine a sans doute été la redécouverte de tout un pan négligé du répertoire ancien, ce que l'on appelle « musique baroque », ...

Marc Rougier's curator insight, November 19, 2013 12:50 AM

My mind is blown.


The genius of Da Vinci; everybody knows he is a genius, one of the few universally recognized geniuses; yet, are we ready to discover more from him?


The skill, patience and dertermination of this visionary musician who brought Da Vinci's plan to life 500 hundred years later!


And it works! It does sound both weird and nice. Ok the chosen pieces are not all that great, but Marin Marais sounds perfect. This wacky piece of art needs to be seen and heard.


Scooped in Violins because Viola belongs to the family (granted, this viola organista is a fairly remote cousin).
