Antonio Vivaldi – “Double Concerto, Largo, G Minor” (1780s)

I know fairly little about pre-20th Century Classical music–it seems to me the journey of a lifetime, so I’m not rushed.  I do know, though, that my ears gravitate toward chamber music, string-based sounds, the less bombastic and portentous, more melancholic and contemplative end of the spectrum.  And from that range, this is one of the most devastatingly beautiful pieces I know. [This Vivaldi is featured in a “duet” with an instrumental percussive piece by Bjork in this short mix at Musicophilia.]
