Woof, woof. I’m Jack the Labrador and I am here to talk about philosophy, classical music and all that stuff. I would like to talk about celebs but Martin, my slave, told me that I’m still not prepared. Today we are going to listen to Antonio Vivaldi, a well-kown baroque composer. The Four seasons. Well, Martin, I know how to cut and paste. Look at this!
Antonio Lucio Vivaldi (4 March 1678 – 28 July 1741), nicknamed il Prete Rosso (“The Red Priest”) because of his red hair, was an Italian Baroque composer, Catholic priest, and virtuoso violinist, born in Venice. Recognized as one of the greatest Baroque composers, his influence during his lifetime was widespread over Europe. Vivaldi is known mainly for composing instrumental concertos, especially for the violin, as well as sacred choral works and over forty operas. His best known work is a series of violin concertos known as The Four Seasons.
Well, let’s go then. We are going to listen The Four Seasons by Antonio Vivaldi. In fact, I don’t like so much the sound of violins but Martin does and, well, I need to convince him I’m a good dog. My walk is at 7.00 o’clock and that’s my only problem. See later and, you know, art is everywhere, even in the baroque period. Woof, woof!
