7, 8, and 11 contain no fewer than six solo movements in which the second violin merely accompanies. In general, what I have said about the Op. 1 trio sonatas applies to Vivaldi’s second set of published works, the twelve Sonatas for Violin and Continuo. They were first published without an opus number in 1709 by Antonio Bortoli of Venice. Bortoli announced their publication late in 1708. The designation “Op. 2” appeared on the 1711 reprint by Estienne Roger of Amsterdam. The violin sonatas were dedicated to King Frederick IV of Denmark and Norway, who made an incognito visit to Venice between 29 December 1708 and 6 March 1709 during Carnival and attended a Pietà concert conducted by Vivaldi on 30 December.
The best music-making in Venice is to be found in the orphanages for girls, consisting entirely of orphans, of illegitimate children, or of children from families unable to pay for their education. The state educates them at its expense and has some of them trained to be good musicians. It is therefore no wonder that they sing like angels, and play violin, flute, oboe, organ, cello, and bassoon, not even stopping at the largest instruments … ; some forty girls perform at each concert. I assure you, there is no more delightful sight than a pretty young nun wearing a white robe and a bouquet of pomegranate flowers in her hair, leading an orchestra with incomparable grace and with the proper feeling.
On 23 April 1685 when he began as a violinist in the St. Mark’s orchestra, his annual salary was fifteen ducats. Beginning on 21 August 1689 he was paid a salary of twenty-five ducats, perhaps because in addition to his orchestral duties, he performed solos. On 22 July, one month before this raise, he was appointed instrument teacher (maestro d’instrumenti) at the Ospedale dei Mendicanti, and we have records showing that he performed during the same year at the city’s leading opera house, San Giovanni Grisostomo.
