Vivaldi's 12 concertos were first published in 1711 by Roger in Amsterdam. These 8 elegant part-books helped to establish Vivaldi's reputation throughout Europe and provided the rules from which such writers as Quantz, Marcello and Mattheson judged and advised other composers. Much imitated, the concertos continued to influence the works of later composers and indeed J. S. Bach.
