The Vivaldi Minor Flute is a tribute to classical musician Antonio Vivaldi from Venice Italy, who was a virtuoso on the violin playing all around Europe and impressing royalty and the Pope with his gift of music.
Of Vivaldi, a German architect said, "Vivaldi played a solo accompaniment excellently, and at the conclusion he added a free fantasy which absolutely astounded me, for it is hardly possible that anyone has ever played, or ever will play, in such a fashion."
In 1704 at 25, Vivaldi became a priest, and due to his bright red hair he was called the Red Priest. But being weak in the lungs he was unable to speak from a pulpit and served in the early 1700's teaching music to orphaned and abandoned girls and toured with them playing concerts throughout Europe.
Years later due to the death of his biggest fan, the emperor of France, Charles the 6th, who had sent for Vivaldi to come, but was not around anymore to support him, and due to much musical competition and no benefactor, Vivaldi died a year later, totally broke. There was not even any music played at his humble burial.
His music was silent for the next 200 years. But his music was rediscovered at the beginning of the 1900's and after World War Two, his music soothed a hurt world being rebuilt in heart and soul. Today, Vivaldi is honored as one of the treasured classical Baroque composers of the world. I am honored to make a flute that I call the Vivaldi Flute and remember Antonio Vivaldi, the Red Priest who taught orphans music and toured with them.
