As published, Vivaldi's Opus 10 is a straightforward collection of concertos for flute and string orchestra. Within the large corpus of works that remained unpublished when Vivaldi died, almost every work in the print had a cousin that differed by key or instrumentation. Cousins could also differ somewhat in content. Solo episodes might change from one source to the next. Ritornelli might vary by length without varying much in essential content. Vivaldi frequently adapted previous works to suit a new performance venue.

Vivaldi was not as much at ease in writing for woodwinds as he was for violins. Most works with obbligato flutes seem to have originated during his Roman sojourn (intermittent, 1719 or 1720 to 1724). Throughout his life he responded to circumstances, and in his concertos for instruments other than violin and viola d'amore it is likely that the available of excellent players prompted the composition of these works. In the "extended family" of Op. 10 there is only one change of key/mode (No. 2/No. 2alt), which also exhibits significant changes of content.

Six Concertos for Flute and String Orchestra, Op. 10; Related Variants

As published, Vivaldi's Opus 10 is a straightforward collection of concertos for flute and string orchestra. Within the large corpus of works that remained unpublished when Vivaldi died, almost every work in the print had a cousin that differed by key or instrumentation. Cousins could also differ somewhat in content. Solo episodes might change from one source to the next. Ritornelli might vary by length without varying much in essential content. Vivaldi frequently adapted previous works to suit a new performance venue.

Vivaldi was not as much at ease in writing for woodwinds as he was for violins. Most works with obbligato flutes seem to have originated during his Roman sojourn (intermittent, 1719 or 1720 to 1724). Throughout his life he responded to circumstances, and in his concertos for instruments other than violin and viola d'amore it is likely that the available of excellent players prompted the composition of these works. In the "extended family" of Op. 10 there is only one change of key/mode (No. 2/No. 2alt), which also exhibits significant changes of content.
