I am searching for Vivaldi's Concerto in F for strings. I do not have further information, all I remember is a happy sounding introduction, with a high note, then a lower note about an octave lower, both held for about a quarter to half note, then repeated before the fancy baroque style started. Any musical Sherlocks out there up to the challenge?

Could be RV141. (There is probably a few) but it could it. The first movement, as is often the case an allegro a very bouncy happy allegro, second is a dance, and the third has sliding harmonics, and all (to my ear anyway) are in two parts with Bass and Treble playing of each other. It only goes for 4.5 minutes. It is available on the Opus 111 Concerti per archi [Concerto Italiano Rinaldo Alessandrini] that Vivaldi collection... Also on the Decca Label on the CD which Andeas Scholl sings With the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra directed by Paul Dyer. I have it on the ABC classics label, but they publish through Decca, if it helps you find it the first piece is Nisi Dominus RV 608.
Hope my geekyness helped.

I have a CD with The "Double Concerto for two horns and String Orchestra in F major." Is that what you're looking for?

Well, it's certainly been a while since you asked, but... I have RV569 from Brilliant Classics music which is a Concerto in F for multiple instruments (this one strings & winds), and the opening sounds like your description. Searching Amazon MP3s for 569, I found this album Vivaldi for diverse instruments / PBO · McGegan which has another molticoncerto in F which I don't own. You can listen to the links to the MP3 samples and see if anything sounds familiar, though the samples don't start at the beginning, generally. Searching for *my* CD's artist (Ensemble Modo Antiquo), I found this 2 disc set The Best of Vivaldi with a different set of samples you could listen to (disc 2 tracks 10,11,12). My disc is the second of this 2 disc set (was part of a 40 disc Brilliant Classics 'greatest' composers set that I am quite happy with). These samples might give you another portion of the piece to compare. I also happened across another rendition on this CD (from someone's 25 best Vivaldi list) and it sounds pretty good to me from the sample - might be the one to buy: Vivaldi: Concerti con molti strumenti, Vol. 2. If the samples sound about right, might be worth a buck to buy an MP3 Allegro to hear the whole thing and be sure. Wikipedia lists all the works in existence for most composers, and there is likely a limited number in F to look into if this is not *yours*. Note that Opus 8 #s 3 & 4 in F (RVs 293 and 297) are Autumn & Winter from the 4 Seasons, and therefore likely not what you are looking for or you'd have found it already. Good luck. P.S. let us know if you find, or already found, your answer. :)
