From the Publisher
First edition based on a Dresden manuscript of Pisendel. Up until now, the sonata has been available in G major only, which is kept in the archives of the Berliner Liedertafel. As a result of more recent research, Prof. Nikolaus Delius managed to find a copy of the Sonata in D major made by Pisendel which is can be found in the Sächsische Landesbibliothek Dresden, and he ascribed the work to Vivaldi. The version in D major is convincing because of its ideal register which gives the solo instrument more intensity and brilliance. A carefully edited first edition with introductory text.
Difficulty level, roughly compared to ABRSM exam grades. 0 is beginner, 9 is advanced (beyond grade 8).
