Micky White’s new biography of Antonio Vivaldi, styled as a chronological series of original documents accompanied by ample commentaries, is the first such study of this composer to adopt this method. It reveals him more clearly than ever in his musical, familial, religious and social settings, giving us greater insight into his personality and daily life. The volume is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing reproductions of the transcribed documents.
