    Well written scholarly but accessible account of Vivaldi's life and work Some musical technical language

    This biography gave me exactly what I was looking for a readable scholarly rundown of Vivaldi's life and works It was exactly the right length and level of depth Talbot's prose was clear and engaging throughout He especially excelled in preventing the two chapters on Vivaldi's works from becoming tedious laundry lists instead providing through lines about the features and development of Vivaldi's music
