Antonio Vivaldi - Spring



I'm so sure you have heard this somewhere before, well at least the first few seconds. It's so famous. Allow me to introduce to you the baroque composer of this piece, Antonio Vivaldi, the red priest. Why is he called the red priest? Because he had fiery red hair! WOW! Unfortunately, there is no picture of his red hair since the camera wasn't invented back then and because wigs were the fashion back then. This piece is the Spring Concerto and it's part of a set of violin concertos. It's not that hard to guess the other three pieces since the name of this set is The Four Season. Hehehehee!
