Identifying Quartet music
I am wondering is the quartet music from 0:18 to 0:26 Vivaldi's composition?

Sounds like Haydn or Mozart to me
Sounds more like Haydn to me but I can’t place it. Definitely not Vivaldi.
That is Drottningholms musiken by Johan Helmich Roman, the first movment in the suite. Written in 1744...
This is why the hive mind rules.
That is some darn impressive identification. :-)
Not for someone from Sweden ;-)
The mind boggles however at the video...
IMSLP has 50 pieces by Roman 1694-1758, making him a reasonably prolific late-Baroque composer. The pieces include the 24-mvt Drottningholms suite (with several recordings thereof), a couple of recorded violin concertos, a sonata in G min for either violin or oboe, and a collection of pieces for violin solo which is in next-to-illegible manuscript, so the best of luck with that one!
I did look up the score and found that the movement in question is scored for strings plus trumpets, horns and oboe, none of which are being used in the sample in the video. And I also couldn't find exactly the passage being played, at least in the first movement.
As well as the numerous Assaggi. Roman is one of the most prolific baroque composers of solo violin music.
As Mattias said this piece is world famous in Sweden and is being played frequently. Any school orchestra here will have played at least parts of it. And arrangements have been made for many different settings.
David - if you ignore the wind (the upper staffs) you will see that it is played just about as written.
For those who don’t know, google app can now identify tunes played back. You could play the tune you want to identify on another device and google will search for it from the app.
