Even casual listeners of classical music are likely familiar with Vivaldi’s most famous work, The Four Seasons. Antonio Vivaldi (1685-1741) was born in Venice, Italy, and soon became known as a virtuoso violinist and the “Red Priest”, owing to his flaming red hair and his actual profession. With a temperament as volatile as his red locks, Vivaldi led anything but a sedate priestly existence. As the composer of over 600 masterworks for violin and orchestra and once the darling of the European royal courts, he died in poverty and relative obscurity. Yet the legacy of his beautiful music remains as rich today as it was in his glory years.
