Vivaldi became known as the red priest because of his bright red hair. Vivaldi had a medical problem he called tightening of the chest Today we. would call it asthma His medical problems did not prevent him however from. learning to play the violin to compose and to take part in many musical activities. As far as we know his father was his only important teacher and they sometimes. played the violin together in church,DANGER OF DEATH. Antonio Vivaldi was,born in Venice on,March 4 1678.

His music was written for this talented group which was famous throughout Europe Visitors were surprised. that young women could play such large or unusual instruments as the bassoon and clarinet.
