The first movement – Allegro – of Antonio Vivaldi’s Flute Concerto no. 1 in F major (RV 433), featuring an alto recorder as the soloist, supported by a small chamber ensemble of strings and harpsichord.
Also known as “La tempesta di mare” (The Storm at Sea), it is a very bright, lively piece; full of the delightful wit and charm often found in baroque music.
This first movement kicks things off with a brisk, energetic Allegro.
The third movement can be found here.
