google for vivaldi

To honor the birthday of the world famous composer and violin genius Antonio Vivaldi, born in Venice in 1678. He was nicknamed the Red Priest on account of his red hair and ordination in 1703. The Four Seasons, a popular series of four violin concerti, is his best-known work and is representative of the baroque period in European art music.

Here are extracts from my favorites:

Antonio Vivaldi – Autumn

Antonio Vivaldi – Winter

Antonio Vivaldi – Spring
