Rollover to Zoom
Very little has been written on Vivaldi for the nonspecialist, especially in English. Landon rediscovers the composer in this accessible and musically informed biography while presenting documentation of the musician's life discovered after the Baroque revival in the 1930s. This book includes illustrations of eighteenth-century Venice and several newly translated letters, thoroughly evoking the style of the time and revealing some of the more personal aspects of Vivaldi's life.
H. C. Robbins Landon is an honorary Professorial Fellow of University College, Cardiff. His many works include "Haydn: Chronicle and Works" and "Mozart and Vienna."
