Antonio Vivaldi Biography
(1678-1741)

Antonio Vivaldi was born on March 4, 1678 in Venice, Italy. Vivaldi was a violinist and composer who also became a priest in 1703. He was known as "The Red Priest" because of his red hair. He wrote hundreds of concertos, chamber works and operas in the Baroque style.

Vivaldi was not really appreciated until the mid-20th century, when there was a revival in Baroque music and Vivaldi became popular to Classical music listeners. He single-handedly developed the concerto into a form which remained mostly unchanged. The most popular piece Vivaldi wrote is the four concertos known as "I Quattro Stagioni" (The Four Seasons), written in 1723. The Four Seasons was one of the earliest examples of "Program Music" (music that evokes scenes). Vivaldi's music is different than other Baroque composers by his use of melodic invention and originality, along with an incredible amount of excitement.

Despite a prosperous life, Vivaldi became penniless in his later years. He died in Vienna, Austria on July 28, 1741 from gastric infection. Antonio Vivaldi, genius Baroque composer, was buried in a pauper's grave.

Vivaldi's Greatest Works:
"The Four Seasons"
