Antonio Vivaldi , in full Antonio Lucio Vivaldi , born March 4, , Venice, Republic of Venice [Italy]—died July 28, , Vienna , Austria , Italian composer and violinist who left a decisive mark on the form of the concerto and the style of late Baroque instrumental music. Antonio, the eldest child, trained for the priesthood and was ordained in Soon after his ordination as a priest, Vivaldi gave up celebrating mass because of a chronic ailment that is believed to have been bronchial asthma. Despite this circumstance, he took his status as a secular priest seriously and even earned the reputation of a religious bigot. In the years up to , Roger published three more collections of his concerti opuses 4, 6, and 7 and one collection of sonatas Opus 5. He achieved great success with his sacred vocal music, for which he later received commissions from other institutions.
Born in Venice , the capital of the Venetian Republic , he is regarded as one of the greatest Baroque composers , and his influence during his lifetime was widespread across Europe. He composed many instrumental concertos , for the violin and a variety of other musical instruments , as well as sacred choral works and more than forty operas. His best-known work is a series of violin concertos known as the Four Seasons. Vivaldi also had some success with expensive stagings of his operas in Venice , Mantua and Vienna. However, the Emperor died soon after Vivaldi's arrival, and Vivaldi himself died in poverty less than a year later. He was baptized immediately after his birth at his home by the midwife, which led to a belief that his life was somehow in danger. Though the reasons for the child's immediate baptism are not known for certain, it was done most likely due either to his poor health or to an earthquake that shook the city that day. In the trauma of the earthquake, Vivaldi's mother may have dedicated him to the priesthood.
She is a returned missionary, and won't Marry you if you want to stay atheist. And to top things off, last night I caught him cheating. Before I met my husband I had dated quite a few members and some relationships were quite serious but I never felt right about it. Interreligious marriages are not a new thing. This makes me so sad.
