Music: Antonio Vivaldi

Antonio Vivaldi (4 March 1678 — 28 July 1741) was an Italian composer and violinist from the Baroque era.

He is perhaps best known for a set of four violin concertos called the The Four Seasons.

Vivaldi began his career as a Catholic priest and a tutor of music in a school for girls in Venice. He was referred to as 'The Red Priest' for his red hair. He was banned from officiating at religious services and nearly declared insane after he excused himself during the middle of a service, at which he was officiating, to write down a few bars of music that just occurred to him.
