Vivaldi: Concerto in b minor for 4 violins arr. for 1 melodica in 9 multitrack partsBy Jaems • Oct 5th, 2009 • Category: Online Performances, Video
I have here chosen to use only one melodica for all 9 parts of Vivaldi’s b minor quadruple violin concerto from L’Estro Armonico. This means that all parts are constrained within 3 octaves. This has no effect on the violin parts, little effect on the viola parts (of which there are 2) and pretty significant effect on the cello and bass parts since the lower octaves had to be sacrificed in order to get the sound of a constrained instrument group. This video features the four solo violin parts in order from top to bottom. On a side note, I did add a separate track of a fully realized continuo part. Thanks for watching!
Scoring: Violin Solo 1,2,3,4 (shown) Viola 1, Viola 2, Cello, Keyboard Continuo, Bass
