Concerto RV 315, Op. 8, No. 2 L'Estate (II : Adagio) -- Urtext

Four Seasons - Summer- Concerto in G minor - Second Movement



This Adagio is the second of three movements in the Concerto RV 315, Op. 8, No. 2 (L'Estate) 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 Adagio of the Summer concerto are as follows :

Toglie alle membra lasse il Suo riposo
Il timore de' Lampi, e tuoni fieri
E de mosche, e mossoni il Stuol furioso!


[The fear of lightning and fierce thunder
Robs his tired limbs of rest
As gnats and flies buzz furiously around.]

Duration : 02:06
