Vivaldi managed to bring down the time of four seasons from one year to less than one hour, his ability to make the strings of a violin sing was nothing but remarkable. He served as a musical tutor in an orphanage. In this orphanage the most musically talented girls were taught to play music and the boys would learn a trade. Those that were allowed to tutor the talented girls of the orphanage had to be voted in by a counsel, after being voted in and serving for several years Vivaldi was voted out, yet after a year the council realised who they had rejected, the management and tutoring of the highly talented girls was becoming awfully deplorable, and the counsel voted him back in. It didn't take long until under the lead of Vivaldi the orphanage girls gained wide spread fame, singing and playing opera after opera, touching the hearts of high and low alike, Kings envied his fame and the Pope longed to hear his masterpieces. Yet again, all have to endure the pangs of life, during later stages of his life he had to endure poverty, the King that much appreciated his works, which could have given him financial security, had died. His last travel was from Prague to Vienna where he died impoverished. Now, many seasons later his "Four Seasons" is still listened to and the services he rendered to the orphaned still remembered. Vivaldi and violins, it is surely to be with us for many more seasons.
