Vivaldi

Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (1678-1741) nicknamed il Prete Rosso ('The Red Priest'), was a Venetian Baroque composer, priest, and famous virtuoso violinist. He was born and raised in the Republic of Venice. 'The Four Seasons', a popular series of four violin concerti, is his best-known work. His other compositions include over 500 instrumental concertos, sacred choral works and over 40 operas. 'Le quattro stagioni' (The Four Seasons) of 1723 is his most famous work. It is part of 'Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione' (The Contest between Harmony and Invention). It depicts moods and scenes from each of the four seasons. This work has been described as an outstanding instance of pre-19th Century program music.
