Helen Carolan's Concerto and Vivaldi (34) RE: Carolan's Concerto and Vivaldi 19 Dec 19


I forgot to mention that Vivaldi is as much a favourite of mine as O'Carolan is - and that's saying something!! - so I have listened to a lot of Vivaldi over the decades.

For me, I just tend to think that he imitated the style of a concerto rather than copying a specific piece of music.

Also, as we do not have a specific date for the encounter with the Italian music or musician, and as far as I know we don't have a date for the composition of the Concerto, it is also possible that he composed the concerto while sharing music with the Italian but later dedicated the piece to Mrs Poer. Or she may even have been present at the encounter with the Italian musician. Who knows?

At moments like this I wish I had a TARDIS nearby.
