[Antonio] Vivaldi

I Quattro Stagioni, a.k.a. "The Four Seasons" and especially the famous Violin Concerto in a minor, Opus 3, No, 6 (RV356). J.S. Bach made two transcriptions for organ of two Vivaldi concerti, and I love those, too, and esp love playing them. One of my Haarlem organ teachers observed, "With these arrangements you're playing two very great composers."
