here the violin concerto of Giovanni Battista Pergolesi, who has not become very old:
PERGOLESI, Giovanni Battista (1710-1736) vc in D flat major
And I thought Bach was 'bad'. This is actually very beautiful in a very baroque way - but what gorgeous fiddling - just keeping your place must be a nightmare! Kudos to the violinist whoever it may be...
Very good music! Thanks for sharing!
To be honest I didn't like the playing much. Too many liberties with the rythm (like romanticising the semiquavers/16th notes) and bulging on the longer notes.
It did not seem a too difficult concerto to me.
