Known for his innovation and instrumental virtuosity, Antonio Vivaldi was on the cutting edge of Baroque trends. Early music specialist John Butt, director of Scotland’s highly acclaimed Dunedin Consort, traces his accomplishments along with the people who inspired him—and whom he inspired, too. Featured works include Vivaldi’s energetic Concerto for 3 Violins and Bassoon Concerto in C Major plus music by Corelli, Albinoni, and Bach’s Orchestral Suite No. 1.
