Vivaldi (The Master Musicians Series) 2nd edition by Michael Talbot
English | Publisher: J.M. Dent, 1993 | 251 Pages | PDF | 3 MB
The admission of Vivaldi to the select company of the ‘Master Musicians’ is a sign of the growing esteem in which he has been held in recent decades. Fortunately, this surge of interest has stimulated research into Vivaldi’s life and works, so that an author today can draw upon much information unavailable at the time of the pioneer studies.
Gone are the days when he was regarded principally as a composer of concertos; we now have to see him as an important contributor to several genres: vocal as well as instrumental, sacred as well as secular.
