Preceded only by a set of Trio Sonatas in 1705 and a set of Violin Sonatas in 1709, Antonio Vivaldi's first published set of concertos, called "L'estro armonico," was the most influential and innovative collection of orchestral music of the first half of the eighteenth century. "L'estro armonico" (roughly, The Genius of Harmony) was published as his Op. 3 in Amsterdam in 1711 by Estienne Roger and quickly completely changed the form from the more weighty Roman model of Corelli to the lighter Venetian model of Vivaldi.

The eighth work in the set is the Concerto in A minor, RV 522, a three-movement work for two solo violins concertino plus orchestral ripieno of violins, violas, cello, and basso continuo. The opening Allegro has a powerful and propulsive opening theme for the ripieno followed by driving episodes for the two soloists playing separately and in imitation.

This arrangement comes with a supplemental third violin part, and an optional bass part for use with string orchestra.
