Nevertheless Vivaldi's violin concertos are highly personal and expressive. This results from the way Vivaldi constructs his melodies and his forms. In Vivaldi's lifetime the concerto was rather a new form for which a standard was not yet available. Everything being more or less standardized to Mozart and Beethoven, had been virtual virgin territory to Vivaldi and his contemporaries. With his concerto» Vivaldi introduced some rules about the order of the individual elements: sections for the orchestra by itself, for orchestra and soloist, sections with the main subject sections with material based on this theme.

Besides, the violin «vent through a period of great change: building violins became the work of highly skillea craftsman and the scope for players was enlarged enormously. Vivaldi, himself an excellent violinist followed these events with great interest and integrated the innovations in his compositions. Never before was virtuosity exposed to such a great extent in a written score. Vivaldi wrote his music for the new rising class of the bourgeoisie who on the one hand demanded rather easy music to be played at home and on the other hand virtu osic compositions to be listened to in the amusement place for the new classes, the concert hall. Especially in France the concert industry came into full swing and compositions tor this kind of entertainment were in great demand.
