The Music

Violinist, priest and most prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice 1678 and spent most of his life there, associated for much of the time with the Ospedale della Pieta, a charitable institution for girls, with strong musical tradition. The music for the tour is taken from concertos for various instruments.
