Vivaldi: facts about the great composer
10. Vivaldi's concertos
'The Four Seasons' may well be his most famous piece, but Vivaldi wrote more than 500 other concertos for other instruments including mandolin, cello, flute, viola d'amore, recorder, and lute. Around 230 of these are for violin - he was, after all, a violinist, like his father.
