Antonio Vivaldi was born on this day in 1678, in Venice.
His music is exuberance, clarity and celebration, like the sun that warms the air and highlights all that is beautiful, even tickles the grumpy to an inner smile. A non-practising priest (yeah), he praised creation through his fingers. He took pride in completing his pieces in a very short time. Well, his method worked!
A great composer with an unmistakable signature style. He left us with tunes that heal and draw out the best in any situation. A master of Santosha.
