Vivaldi’s Op. 6 concertos first appeared in 1719 under the imprint of Jeanne Roger. Though the engraved parts contain an unusually large number of errors and the structure of the publication deviates in a quite clear-cut manner from that of any other instrumental collection shaped according to the traditional Vivaldian canons, in many respects these works are more ‘typical’ of their composer than any previously published.
The Introduction explores the characteristics of the textual transmission of Op. 6 and the stylistic features of each individual concerto in order to gather a broad range of information on the genesis and intrinsic nature of the collection. The Critical Edition of the six concertos includes a statement of Editorial Methods. All discrepancies between the principal source and the edition are documented in the Critical Commentary, which likewise comprehensively reports on variants in the secondary sources.
