The Concerto in G Major by Antonio Vivaldi (arranged by Carlos Silva) was originally written for string orchestra with solo violin and is more advanced than the CGR 300 Concerto in C Major. This version is arranged for 5 guitars with the solo violin part arranged for guitar 1. The three movement work is about 12 minutes in length and is suitable for an advanced guitar ensemble. It is especially appropriate if your ensemble includes a variety of ability levels as the lower parts are easily performed, while the first and second guitar parts require good technique and the ability to perform passages in upper positions. The work is a wonderful example of Vivaldi’s style with exciting passage work and a stirring final jig movement.
