Concerto RV 293, Op. 8, No. 3 L'Autunno (III : Allegro) -- Urtext

Four Seasons - Autumn - Concerto in F Major - Third Movement



This lively Allegro is the third of three movements in the Concerto RV 293, Op. 8, No. 3 (L'Autunno) by Antonio Vivaldi.

This concerto is part of Vivaldi's famous Four Seasons [Le quattro stagioni], a series of four concertos part of Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione [The Contest of Harmony and Invention].

Each concerto in the Four Seasons is associated to a sonnet probably written by Vivaldi himself.

The verses corresponding to the final Allegro of the Autumn concerto are as follows :

I cacciator alla nov' alba à caccia
Con corni, Schioppi, e canni escono fuore
Fugge la belua, e Seguono la traccia;
Già Sbigottita, e lassa al gran rumore
De' Schioppi e canni, ferita minaccia
Languida di fuggir, mà oppressa muore.


[The hunters emerge at the new dawn,
And with horns and dogs and guns depart upon their hunting
The beast flees and they follow its trail;
Terrified and tired of the great noise
Of guns and dogs, the beast, wounded, threatens
Languidly to flee, but harried, dies.]

Please note the following points about this Urtext edition :
  • Measure 39 (violin part) : in the Manchester manuscript, measure 39 is identical to measure 40
  • Measure 59 : the violin part is originally notated as sixteenth note triplets
  • Measure 60 : the segue indication in the violin part is editorial
  • Measures 76-77 : the notes in the violin part are slurred by 3 in the Amsterdam print
  • Measure 86 : the B flat in the violin part is editorial
  • Measures 129, 131, 133 and 135 : the slurs in the violin part are from the Amsterdam print


Duration : 03:40
