Antonio Vivaldi lived over 300 years ago in Venice in Italy. As a child he suffered from asthma and spent a lot of time at home. His father taught him to play the violin. When he grew up, he became a clergyman and was called The Ginger Priest because of his red hair. This interesting fact is not visible on any of his portraits, as during those times – The Baroque – gentlemen used to wear white wigs. Vivaldi composed numerous musical pieces, mostly for violin and over 400 concerts. He is best known for his masterpiece “Four Seasons”.
