Antonio Vivaldi

Biography

Italian famous violinist, a composer of concertos for various instruments. He is said to have written nearly 50 operas, 500 concertos, 70 sonatas and religious music, but is best known for his instrumental compositions, including "La Pastorella" and "The Four Seasons." He spent most of his life in Venice, where he served as a violinist at the cathedral of Saint Mark.

Vivaldi was a Roman Catholic priest known as "the red priest" because of his red hair. In 1740 he accepted a position at the court of Emperor Charles VI of Vienna. He virtually established the three-movement format for the concerto and was among the first to introduce cadenzas for soloists.

He died in poverty during the night of 27/28 July 1741, in Vienna, Austria, aged 63. He was buried on 28 July in a simple grave in a burial ground that was owned by the public hospital fund.
