Listening to . . . . Vivaldi - Concerti Con Titoli

I Musici

Concerti Con Titoli translated means "Concerts with Titles" rather than just an opus number, I suppose. But these are beautiful concertos, mostly violin and flute based and well played by I Musici. This set is missing any descriptive literature and other than listen and enjoy, I'm not sure what their provenance might be.

A Philips LP two record box set - Philips Records R 215021 (1957, 1958, 1962, 1966, 1968)

Side 1: Concerti fur Violine, Streicher und Continuo
Concerto e-moll, Op. 11, 2 RV 277 (PV 106) "Il favorito"
Concerto E-dur RV 270 (PV 248) "Il riposo"
Concerto e-moll RV 199 (PV 419) "Il sospetto"

Side 2:
Concerto c-moll, RV 199 (cont.)
Concerto D-dur RV 234 (PV 208) "L'inquietudine"
Concerto E-dur, RV 271 (PV 246) "L'amoroso"

Side 3: Concerti Op. 10 fur Flote, Streicher und Continuo
Concerto No. 1 F-dur, RV 433 (PV 261)
Concerto No. 2 g-moll, RV 439 (PV 342)
