Description
Among Vivaldi's many flute and recorder concertos, two, both for transverse flute, were known until a few years ago only in incomplete form: RV 431 and 432. Both are written in the comfortable and expressive key of E minor, aretransmitted in autograph manuscripts and lack their second movement (RV 432 also lacks its third movement). The seemingly enigmatic instruction Grave sopra il libro replacing the second movement has given rise to the most fancifulhypotheses. The discovery in Edinburgh, in 2010, of a concerto for transverse flute in D minor entitled Il gran Mogol suddenly shed light on the situation: this was an earlier version of RV 431, now complete with its middlemovement, a Larghetto that is very possibly identical with the one missing in RV 431. This Gran Mogol, which belonged to Robert Kerr, a Scottish nobleman and amateur flautist, was already known by name to scholars on account ofits listing in an eighteenth-century catalogue as part of a set of Vivaldi concertos bearing geographical titles: more recently, there has come to light a letter written by Vivaldi three months before his death in which thecomposer describes this set in detail. It is very likely that RV 431 and RV 432 belonged to this groupof works, the last known collection of its kind in Vivaldi's oeuvre. Critical Edition and Reconstruction by F. M. Sardelli
