An interesting parallel... here's another chamber piece w/recorder, in the same key (note the adjacent index number, RV 103) and an adaptation that went in a different direction. I never see this connection made - but it's obvious when you hear it. (I don't know which came first, but usually it's the smaller chamber piece.)

Vivaldi - chamber concerto in g, RV 103, 1st movt. Marion Verbruggen (recorder), Paul Goodwin (oboe), Dennis Godburn (bassoon).

Vivaldi - concerto for strings & basso continuo in g, RV 156, 1st movt. The English Concert.
