I once saw a concert, where they mixed up Vivaldis Four Seasons with Charles Ives' Four Holidays Suite. Which is extremely modern, weird and cacophoneus. So you would have a piece of gorgues baroque music. And then noise. Beauty. Noise. Beauty. Noise.

I thing Vivaldi tends to be a bit safe and boring, but in this context, it was amazing. Great concert.

I love the Vivaldi Gloria. That's easily one of my favorite pieces of music.

Vivaldi "four seasons" is one of my favourite.

I love some of the pieces he did for the bassoon. An underused instrument for many composers.

Sure, you can't talk about 17th century music without mentioning him in the slightest, but his music is certainly not definitive of the period.

I completely 100% agree with this assessment. I would like to demonstrate this, and while I agree with what BD posted about the over-played Four Seasons, I will nonetheless use it as an example of why I feel that JS Bach is so vastly superior.

Consider the most famous of the 4 movements, "Spring". In particular, pay close attention to the bass register:

It's just the E. Just the basic key note. All of the melodic features of the piece are in the upper register, the violins. Now juxtapose that to "Die Kunst Der Fuge"

I'm always smiling when I listen to Vivaldi. He's an exciting composer, lots of fun listening to him.
