The late Austrian violinist Wolfgang Schneiderhan (1915-2002) performs the Concerto Grosso in E major, PV 241 ("Spring") by Antonio Vivaldi. I created this video from the LP depicted above (2:30
), issued in 1966 on the Deutsche Grammophon label, serial number 2535-105. Schneiderhan is accompanied by the Lucerne Festival Strings chamber orchestra, conducted by the late Swiss conductor and violinist Rudolf Baumgartner (1917-2002). Baumgartner founded the orchestra with Schneiderhan in 1956, ten years before this recording was made.
This work was composed some 287 years ago; this recording was made almost half a century ago.
Movement I: Allegro
Movement II: Largo
