Notes and Editorial Reviews

Today, the music of Vivaldi is universally adored. His Four Seasons is perhaps the most recognized piece of Baroque music ever written.

But the man behind the music was much less well understood. The celebrated composer lived with wealth, yet died in poverty. He led the life of a Catholic priest, yet was constantly surrounded by an entourage of beautiful women and had a love affair with at least one of his young students.

Our cameras travel from Venice to Vienna to discover the truth behind his tumultuous life and his celebrated music.
