Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) Italian Baroque Era Composer

Antonio Vivaldi was born on March 4, 1678 in Venice, Italy. Antonio’s father, Giovanni Battista, a barber before becoming a violinist, taught young Antonio to play the violin and then toured Venice playing the violin with him.  At the age of 15, Antonio began training to become a priest. At the age of 25, he was ordained a priest and soon after became known as the II Prete Rosso, “The Red Priest”, because of his red hair. Due to his health, he left the priesthood in 1703 after only 3 years. But he was still able to pursue a career in music.

Gioachino Antonio Rossini (1792-1868) Italian Romantic Era Composer

Gioachino Antonio Rossini was born in Pesaro, Italy on February 29, 1792 into a family of musicians. Gioachino’s parents began his musical training at a young age.  At the age of six, he was playing the triangle in his father’s band.  Antonio’s father made a bad choice and had to go to jail. His mother, as a result, decided to move her family to Bologna to support them as an opera singer. As a child, Antonio performed as an apprentice opera performer, and later entered the Conservatory of Bolonga to study cello and composition. Because he was so taken by the music of Mozart his classmates referred to him as “the little German.”
