Lost Vivaldi concerto played for the first time in 250 years

Il Gran Mogol is almost complete, only missing a part for the second violin.
But Mr Woolley has reconstructed it using the manuscript of another flute concerto by Vivaldi, which is kept in Turin and appears to be a reworking of Il Gran Mogol.
It is unclear exactly how the concerto was brought to Scotland, but it is believed to have belonged to the flute-playing nobleman Lord Robert Kerr, son of the third Marquess of Lothian.
