Synopsis: Traces the life of the Italian violinist and baroque composer whose works were forgotten for two centuries until the rediscovery of his manuscripts in the 1920s.

From School Library Journal: Grade 6 Up–Lavishly illustrated and well researched, this biography presents a portrait of the musician as an ambitious and politically rapacious businessman. After a quick description of Vivaldi's childhood, the text focuses on his career as a prolific and popular composer who died in impoverished obscurity. In a few deft narrative strokes, the authors highlight Vivaldi's contributions to Baroque music as they explain his revitalization of the concerto form, his exploration of complex musical notation techniques to make his compositions richer, and his ceaseless currying of favor among the nobility of 18th-century Italy and Germany. Although they clearly admire their subject's work, they don't whitewash his flaws; rather, they address head-on the reasons for Vivaldi's decline in popularity, including rumors surrounding his relationship with a protégé, his overweening pride and ego, and his loss of patronage through the inevitable change of musical styles in fashion. The back matter includes a fine glossary, a serviceable index, and a comprehensive bibliography. Although the Internet sites provided are authoritative, the list is not annotated. A fine and accessible alternative to Jeroen Koolbergen's Vivaldi (TODTRI, 1996).–Sophie R. Brookover, Camden County Library, Voorhees, NJ
