Johann Sebastian Bach was deeply influenced by Vivaldi’s concertos and arias. He transcribed six of Vivaldi’s concerti for solo keyboard, three for organ, and one for four harpsichords, strings, and basso continuo (BWV 1065) based upon the concerto for four violins, two violas, cello, and basso continuo (RV 580).

Concerto Extravaganza, featuring well-known russian-born pianist, Julia Zilberquit and including two concerti grossi of Bach/Vivaldi, orchestrated by Juia Zilberquit herself, to be premiered in Malta with the Armenian State Symphony Orchestra under the baton of internationally acclaimed conductor and violinist Dmitry Sitkovetsky, performing solo in Vivaldi’s „Four seasons“.
