Almost everyone knows the four violin concertos Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter - the Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi, and for many, that's where the music of Vivaldi begins and ends. But he was very prolific, composing hundreds of other concertos, sonatas, chamber music, choral and vocal music and some forty operas - marvelous material that we tend to overlook today. In this 3-week series, we will explore the vast musical output of Vivaldi, uncovering a misunderstood composer of great genius, skill and talent, and admired by many who followed, including J. S. Bach. A veritable cornucopia of rarely heard treasures!
