Introducing the Lampson/Vivaldi Instrumental Works Cross-Reference.

Being a great admirer of Vivaldi's instrumental works, I've always wished I had a comprehensive and complete listing of all the master's works with the assigned catalog numbers by the various catalogers structured in such a way as to allow easy searching, sorting and translation between the catalog numbers. A fairly thorough search turned up no such list, so I decided to create a database of Vivaldi's works that I could use to create cross-reference lists including any and all information usually included in the various works lists. I have recently concluded the first pass through the data entry and review phases, and present the results for general consideration.

I currently have the following lists available:

I can also make the data available in a variety of formats as necessary. If anyone would like access to this data, please feel free to let me know.

Some interesting stats:


The "New Grove Italian Baroque Masters" article on Vivaldi by Michael Talbot 1980, 1984 W.W. Norton & Company ISBN 0-393-30094-3

Vivaldi by Alan Kendall

Various volumes of the "Informazioni e studi vivaldiani" published by "Instituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi" (founded by Sgr. Antonio Fanna). Sgr. Gian Francesco Malipiero is both Artistic Director of Institute and the editor of the scores; and G. Ricordi & Co. are the publishers of the scores (Edizioni Ricordi).

I would like to acknowledge the invaluable assistance provided by Winslowe Lacesso At the University of Alberta, Canada, in researching inconsistencies and typos in the lists and referring to the published scores as necessary. Her assistance is greatly appreciated.
