VIVALDI IN VENICE Peter Medhurst Monday 10 February 2020

Vivaldi is the one Baroque composer whose music is a direct reflection of the city in which it was composed.  The reasons for this are many - Vivaldi's passion for colour, display and spectacle in his music, as well as his eccentricities as a man and a priest.  This lecture features musical performances.
