The concerto RV 205 was written by Vivaldi and dedicated to his friend and student Pisendel. The present edition is based on the Dresden autograph. The vivaldian autograph was prepared by Vivaldi between 1716 and 1717. Pisendel was in Italy those dates and most probably he took the manuscript from the hands of Vivaldi.
Vivaldi based the first movement of his sonata for violin and continuo in A major RV 205/2 on the third movement of this concerto.
