Vivaldi Cello

Antonio Vivaldi wrote a set of six sonatas for cello and continuo, written between 1720 and 1730, and published in Paris in 1740 by Leclerc and Boivin. These sonatas were published without an opus number; sometimes they are improperly called op. 14.

Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (1678 - 1741)Concertos for celloConcerti per violoncelloConcerto for cello, strings and basso continuo in A minor, RV419Concerto per vi. Vivaldi’s work with cello, all strings in fact, would be incomplete without mention of The Four Seasons, composed in 1723. These four violin concertos are programmatic or descriptive concertos, which means that each one begins with a sonnet Vivaldi himself.

6 Cello Sonatas, Op.14 (Vivaldi, Antonio) This page is only for complete editions and multiple selections from the collection here. For arrangements, new editions, etc. See (or create) separate pages for individual works linked in the General Information section below.

In addition to this publication, Vivaldi wrote at least four other cello sonatas. The manuscripts of two of these are kept in the library of the conservatories of Naples, and another is kept in the castle of Wiesentheid. One sonata in D minor (RV 38) has been lost.
