Antonio Vivaldi is best known for his concertos. Of the 241 violin concertos he composed, many of them have got programmatic nicknames. Italian baroque violinist Enrico Casazza, violin solo of the ensemble "The Musiche Nove," has selected six concertos whose names all refer to human passions ("L'Amoroso" or "The Inquietudine). The bonus CD includes four concertos originally composed for other instruments than the violin. These works were arranged for violin and string orchestra by Vivaldi specialist Pablo Queipo de Llano.
