From an early age, Antonio showed a remarkable talent for music. But his mother's vow would cause him much trouble. As the feisty boy who only wanted to play the violin grew into a stubborn, single-minded man, his musical interests continually got in the way of his studies for the priesthood.
In this lively picture book biography, told as if by Vivaldi himself, the famous musician's energetic personality and steadfast dedication to music come alive. Beautifully ornate artwork captures the spirit of the man and the splendor of his hometown, Venice.
