violins by Antonio Vivaldi in Amsterdam in 1711 laid the foundations for
the fame of the Italian composer in the whole of Europe. This opus 3,
'L'Estro Armonico', brought the musical world the first of more than 500
solo concertos altogether. Apart from 'The Four Seasons', these works
are among the most popular works by Vivaldi even today. Concerto No. 6
in A minor for one solo violin is suitable for both beginner and
advanced lessons because of its technical demands. New edition after the
Urtext Edition by Christpher Hogwood. Piano reduction by Wolfgang
Bärenreiter's scholarly-critical edition, the first ever of this
masterpiece, presents the work in two performing scores. It contains an
introduction on the history of the work reflecting Ravel's work and
rehearsals with violinist Hélène Jourdan-Morhange and cellist Maurice
Maréchal. Included in the appendix
are the original fingerings by the performers which are not found in the
first edition. They reflect how Ravel must have heard the work in
rehearsals and as such are a document of early 20th century performance
