Description

[The Mandolin Concerto in C major, RV 425, which may also be written Mandoline Concerto, etc., is a concerto written by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi in 1725 and is often accompanied by The Four Seasons (1725). The music consists of virtuosic treatment of the solo instrument (i.e. the mandolin), and the interplay between the soloist and accompaniment of the orchestra. The demands are considered higher than other concertos by Vivaldi, and the work is one of the most famous mandolin pieces.]
