Description: Here are three of the seven works written by Vivaldi with the organ as an original participant, plus two of the Bach transcriptions (presumably because the organists wanted to record them but wouldn't it have been nicer to have two of the other originals?) and a modern two-organ transcription of the famous La Notte flute concerto. The organs used are both from the 18th century. Margherita Gianola, Silvio Celeghin (organs of Basilica dei Frari, Venice), Luca Mares, Matteo Marzaro (violins), Accademia di San Rocco; Francesco Fanna.
