Default What do people think of Vivaldi?

I'm starting to listen to a lot of him now and I really like his stuff. I'm still new to classical music, but his pieces are amazing.

definately man, It takes a lot to compose such balanced pieces and his harmonies are excellent

Vivaldi's music was what made me, at the age of five, beg to be allowed to take violin lessons. Now that I've been playing for eleven years though, most of his music is way too repititious for me to enjoy. This judgement though, I think, is mostly based on my experiences in playing it myself (playing repititious music gets very very boring)... So my past self approves, and my present self is sick of him.

I like Vivaldi. My Parents onece took me along to see some muscicians play his music in Venice. I was a bit sceptical at first, but it ended up being amazing.

Wah! In Venice, even! That's amazing. Lucky lucky lucky. [I don't think I'd mind the repititiousness if it were live and in Venice...]

I think Vivaldi sucks ass. Boring as hell to play and boring to listen to. Its like listening to Mozart if you removed 80% of the melody and 95% of the accompaniment and then gave it to a small child to arrange and perform.
