Vivaldi D major sonata

April 22, 2005 at 04:22 PM · I've bought the Vivaldi D major sonata as part of a big wad of downloads (most of which are decent editions). However, much of this sonata just doesn't seem characteristic of Vivaldi's writing. The bow markings I consider to be editorial, however the dots themselves seem rather un-Vivaldi-ish. Can anyone shed some light on this?

Respighi did the arrangement in early 1900 and I believe that it was published in 1908.

I don't remember what the differences was from the original right now, but I can check it up later if you wish.
