i like vivaldi music. I jump the part or piece which is repetitive.
repetition is indeed boring. But some part of his composition is rather beautiful and melodious. This part move my soul . The effect is very difficult to achieve.because the available source is limited for him, so some of his works are repetitive. if a lot of source is available , i believe that repetition part is much less

Stravinsky said Vivaldi wrote the same concerto 450 times (or some large number). I like Vivaldi. He had huge influence on JS Bach, on Bach's concerto style, and I think I read somewhere, on his method of "musical thinking" (planning out a composition).

Vivaldi is fun to play and listen to, a violin virtuoso who made great baroque music that is still enjoyed. Where many people go wrong with Vivaldi is that no one improvises ornaments on top of the lines he wrote which is why it can get repetitive if your not careful.

His stuff now a days is, mostly made artistically vapid by the fact you can listen to whichever of his works you wish as often as you wish; and a lot of it sounds the same.
It's a shame when people "blame him" for that though.
I often feel a lot of these composers would have written differently had they known how music would be consumed in the future.

His 'Gloria' is a lovely work to sing. (both becasue it's well voice led, AND a great piece of music)

Welcome to MB, Dollhead

I agree with your comments about music reproduction. We often forget that classical composers never imagined the extent to which their music could be heard over and over again by a general audience. They probably assumed that, musicians apart, people might hear their music a handful of times during their lives. That must've affected what they composed. I think Vivaldi wrote great material in as much as you can catch his main ideas and enjoy them at the first listen - so perhaps a happier concert experience than some of those romantic heavy-weights.

For the record, I think Vivaldi was at his best when he played violin for Curved Air:-

Very clear, organized, and harmonious music. As unique as his style was, he seems to have influenced lots who came after him. He's also really well known and I don't listen to famous composers that often as I've heard his music hundreds of times, but each time I do I'm still in awe by it's beauty.
