Lecture 3 – Short Summary and Reading I’ll tie up a loose end from last week by showing a short video demonstrating the minuet. Our new material will begin with a general introduction to the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi. We’ll examine the second movement of the second concerto from the printed collection L’Estro armonico (pub. Amsterdam, 1712). Aside from being tremendous fun, this movement is a clear, concise example of a concerto movement in ritornello form. See the listening guide for this movement. We’ll return to the study of Johann Sebastian Bach, and consider his importance as an organist and composer for the organ (see the reading below).
