Winter Escape

Can you name this tune? Here's a hint: It's cold in Venice...

This composer returned to Venice in 1725 after spending a few years in Rome. This was a busy year: he produced four operas, but also his most famous series of violin concerti. Accompanying these four concerti are four corresponding sonnets, likely penned by the composer himself. The sonnet for the winter concerto describes biting snow, stinging winds, and accidents on the ice. The music of the winter concerto evokes these wintertime characteristics with chilling musical effects.
