As part of Vivaldi's first opus (published in 1705), a set of twelve trio sonatas, this piece gives great insight into Vivaldi's style before his revolutionary concerti. Here, Vivaldi takes a more traditional approach and utilizes two popular dances of the Baroque Era, the allemande and gavotte. He also includes a prelude to begin and an adagio to anticipate a capriccio after the allemande, which acts as the second movement. Although this is Vivaldi's first published piece, it foreshadows his soon-to-come signature style—exhilarating, emotional, and ferocious.
Anyone, of course, may use this sheet music for any purpose for free. Enjoy!
