Spring, from the Four Seasons, first movement, abridged (string trio)
Title: Spring, from The Four Seasons, first movement (abridged)
Composer: Antonio Vivaldi, arr. David Gable
Instrumentation: Violin; Violin 2/Viola; Cello
Printout: 4 pages
Note: Selections from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons are essential repertoire for gig musicians, and the first movement of Spring is perhaps the most frequently requested. This version is carefully abridged to avoid the awkward transpositions and transitions found in most arrangements. Both violin parts are playable on flute or oboe. Alternative parts for violin 2 and viola are included.
