Fun Facts

  • Though performed here by our own Roma Duncan on piccolo, the Vivaldi concerto can be played on a recorder or flute. The flautino, the instrument originally specified by Vivaldi, was a Baroque instrument similar to a recorder.
  • While given the nickname Turkish for its Eastern-sounding influences, Mozart used Hungarian music as well as a ballet tune from one of his own operas for inspiration while composing this concerto.
