I'm not arguing the genius of Vivaldi, the piece is definitely a must learn for any violinist. But this particular edition is worthless. There is no accents, no stacattos what so ever. Looks like the whole concert should be played detache. Bowing is very different from what I learnt 15 years ago. Great musicians don't need dynamics written, but I'm not claiming to be one, I'm an amateur and need help. Hopefully, paid editions are more usefull than this one, but I'm not willing to check it out.

This is a really nice piece! I'm going to be playing it once...been practicing for about a year now!

great piece, as one of my favorite conductors once said, "Great composers don't write dynamics and great musicians don't need them written"
Pretty Good Overallby Haleyyy :)on April 17th, 2008
I love this piece .
I have played for 5 years .
This is an exceptional piece that proves challenging an will really test you .
Although it is repetitve (as much of Vivaldi's work is), it is great with dynamics, rythm, and bowing.

There are no dynamics in this piece. Otherwise it's great!

I love this piece and I think it works good for people who have been playing for 3-5 years.
