Attributed to Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741)
Edited by Trevor Wye
As with all editions of these Sonatas published prior to the mid-1990s, credit is given to Vivaldi as the composer of most of the movements, and it is suggested that the Sonatas are “pastiches,” which is to say that they are constructed of movments not originally intended to be placed together as Sonatas. It was conjectured that some of the movments were written by other composers, as they didn't quite match the known style of Vivaldi.
In 1990 a document was discovered which put to rest all the doubt as to the authorship of the Sonatas. Credit was finally given to Nicolas Chedeville as the true composer rather than Vivaldi.
