Transcript of Antonio Vivaldi- By Amy Dang

Full Name: Antonio Lucio Vivaldi
Date: Antonio Vivaldi was born on March 4, 1678
Antonio Vivaldi was born in the beautiful city with many canals, linked by bridges. The city renowned by the beauty of the setting, architecture, and artworks! This city was named Venice. After his birth, he was immediately baptized at home from a midwife, which some people believe this was so, because he was somehow in danger and could have died. It's most likely because of his poor health or because there was an earthquake that hit the city that very day. 2 monthes after birth, Vivaldi was baptized again but this time, at Sestiere di Castello, Venice from a preist named Giacomo Fornaciere.

Antonio Vivaldi's Diary
Dear Diary, March 2, 1690

My mother told me that I have bronchial asthma... They said I would live with it throughout my life... but i don't think that would keep me from playing violin because lately my father, (who is a violinist) has been my music teacher, he expected more from me than his other students since im his son.
Dear Diary, September 25, 1702

Now im 24 years old. I haven't wrote for a long time, the past years had been far too busy, with all the practice of my violin. Now I can actually play the violin, very well too! I was accepted and now started working at Ospedale della Pietà! This school had the most highest ranking music school. I have a major responsibility of teaching the group for girls choir.
Dear Diary, July 7, 1693

I'm now 15 and I have started to study to become a priest now. It is going to be a lot of years to actually finish my studying, and be a priest. Since my parents wanted me to become a priest. I still practice the violin and write music on my free time.
Dear Diary, March 20, 1703

I'm so happy! I'm finally a priest. The three years of studying has payed off! They call me il Prete Rosso, which means "The Red Priest". Because I was born with flaming red hair, that I inherited from my father. I also inherited his gifted of violin playing.

Dear Diary, May 10, 1713

I'm soo excited! Next week my very first opera called "Ottone in villa" is going to be premiered at the Teatro delle Grazie in Vicenza! I'll tell you what my opera is about:
The Roman Emperor Ottone is in love with a woman named Cleonilla, who flirts with two young Romans, Ostilio and Caio. Ostilio is actually a woman, named Tullia, who disguised herself because she's in love with Caio. She plans to kill Cleonilla because of jealousy, but she first tries to keep her from liking Caio. Caio sees the meeting and misreads it as a romantic encounter. He warns Ottone, who commands him to kill Ostilio. Before he can follow the order, Ostilio reveals himself to be Tullia. Cleonilla claims to have always known it, to be with Ottone. He believes her and the opera closes with the marriage of Tullia and Caio.
Dear Diary, June 5, 1725

I'm going to publish what I call "The Four Seasons", it is a set of four violin concertos. They named each concerto the name of the seasons. "spring", "summer", "autumn", and "winter".
Concerto No. 1 in E major, Op. 8, RV 269, "La primavera"
Concerto No. 1 in E major (Spring)
2.Largo e pianissimo sempre
3.Allegro Pastorale
Concerto No. 2 in G minor, (Summer)
1.Allegro non molto
2.Adagio e piano – Presto e forte
Concerto No. 3 in F major, (Autumn)
2.Adagio molto
Concerto No. 4 in F minor, (Winter)
1.Allegro non molto
The first concerto (spring), there are faster and slower parts in the piece, but in the beginning it starts off sow, as if the snow was just slowly melting, and after it get faster, meaning that spring is approaching much faster.

The second concerto (summer), starts off very slow and sounds almost just sad. The beginning of summer is always pretty boring, and you are upset you won't see your friends at school. But then it gets incredably fast at times, there are exciting times in the summer.
The third concerto (autumn) starts off fast it is as if the beginning of autumn is a rush and we are all starting school once again! Then near the end, it's really peaceful and slow, it is as if it represents the leaves drropping to the ground from the trees.

The fourth concerto (winter), starts off very gentle, and slow. Just like in winter, when slowflakes gently and slowly fall to the ground. But later on in winter, the snowfalls get heavier.
Dear Diary, May 28, 1728

After meeting the emperor Charles VI, Vivaldi moved to Vienna, hoping for preferment. But then the emperor died soon after Vivaldi's arrival.
Then on July 28, 1741, Vivaldi died from Internal fire (probably the asthmatic bronchitis from which he suffered all his life).
