    Vivaldi Summer Mvt 3 Vivaldi Summer Mvt 3 Presentation Transcript

    • Summer: Movement 3
      By Antonio Vivaldi
    • Antonio Vivaldi
      • Priest, Baroque composer, and virtuoso violinist
      • Born in Venice, Italy
      • Had several health problems including asthma that restricted him from playing wind instruments
      • Wrote approximately 110 concertos/sonatas
      • Financial status created ultimate downfall
    • Summer Mvt. 3
      • Summer concerto is one of four concerto’s in Vivaldi’s set “Four Seasons”
      • Four Seasons is arguably Vivaldi’s most famous work
      • Summer concerto is a tale of an impending storm
      • Storm is unleashed in 3rd mvt.
      • Thunder shakes the opening of the 3rd movement with the lower strings furious repetition
      • Lightning strikes as the higher strings come in with call and answers
      • Lightning strikes everywhere as the mid strings join the high strings
      • The orchestra coming in represents the torrential downpour of the storm
      • The peasant (solo violin) tries to flee as the storm destroys everything around them
      • The effort is in vein as the peasant is trapped under the storm’s wrath
      • The storm dies down a bit and the orchestra as a whole plays in an uplifting manner. Elements of thunder and lightning can still be recognized in the lower strings. Perhaps this is only the eye of the storm?
      • The storm returns relentlessly
      • The peasant makes a last ditch effort to flee the storms fury as the soloist goes back and forth with the orchestra
      • It is no use. The peasant succumbs to the storm in the final few seconds of the movement.
