When this edition first appeared, Vivaldi's authorship was not yet considered certain. The editor and publisher wished the clock could have been turned back about 300 years to remove all doubt by peering over Vivaldi's shoulder at his writing desk. Proof has finally arrived in the new Ryom catalogue (published in 2018 by Breitkopf & Härtel): RV 446 was in fact composed by Vivaldi. This transient confusion has not, though, effected interest in the present C major concerto RV 446. With Fulvio Caldini's carefully prepared piano score, this work is a rewarding addition to the chamber and teaching repertoires.
