- About this book
The last 50 years have seen a major growth in the performance and study of Vivaldi’s music, accompanied by equally radical changes in the manner of its cultivation. This collection of essays examines critically the reception of the music of Vivaldi and his contemporaries since World War II.
Michael Talbot, born in 1943, is known internationally for his studies of Vivaldi and this composer’s Italian, especially Venetian, contemporaries, and for his editions of their music. Among the other composers on whom he has written monographs are Tomaso Albinoni and Benedetto Vinaccesi. His interests within this area are wide and include biography, history, analysis and textual criticism. He is a Fellow of the British Academy and a Corresponding Member of the Ateneo Veneto. For many years he has been a collaborator of the Istituto Italiano Antonio Vivaldi, and he is currently a co-editor of the Institute’s yearbook «Studi vivaldiani».
