Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice on 4th March 1678. Introduced to the study of violin by his father, a violin player at St. Mark's Chapel, he took holy orders, but, owing to his ill health, he celebrated Mass only for a short period and in 1704 he was "Maestro di Violino di Choro " in the La Pietà Institute, an all-girls orphanage. From 1705 he began to compose first a series of sonatas and then his first Opera: “Ottone in Villa” (1713). The following years were a series of productions and satisfactions up to 1725, “Il cimento dell'armonia e dell' invenzione” (Op. N.8), in which the opening concertos “Le Quattro Stagioni”. It had an extraordinary success. Then came the period for Vivaldi to manage the Teatro S. Angelo in Venice, during which he wrote operas and he never stopped traveling with the European royalty. In 1735 he met Carlo Goldoni for the firs time. Vivaldi died in Vienna on July 28th, 1741.
