For some reason, this record as published all around the world gives priority (and Side A) to the two Viivaldi pieces, whilst
the US edition inverts the order (and title of the album), giving priority (and Side A) to the Giuliani. As I consider UK releases to be the "definitive" version, I have adopted the non-US track listing below.
