Listening Guide to Antonio Vivaldi – Spring Concerto

The spring concerto is divided into three major parts depending on how fast or slow the tempo is played, and this is how the narration of the season is told. The three parts include joyful, slowly and the combination of joyful and slowly. In the first part of the spring concerto can be described as fast and joyful as a way of welcoming the spring. The birds celebrate the return of spring with festive songs, and the breezes softly caress the murmuring streams. Then the thunderstorms and lightening, that cast a black mantle over the heaven which later dies away to silence. The birds again take their charming songs. The second part has a slow tempo, on the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead, the goat herder sleeps along with his faithful dog beside him. The music in the second part sounds restful like someone is sleeping. The third part of the concerto is characterized by a tempo that is fast and joyful. It is led by the festive sound of rustic bagpipes, nymphs, and shepherds lightly dance beneath the brilliant canopy of the spring. At this time, bagpipes are first to be heard, progressing to musical passages that suggest that someone is dancing.
