Ensemble Caprice | Program Six, 43rd Indianapolis Early Music Festival
hroughout his life, Antonio Vivaldi never elaborated on the sources of inspiration for his compositions. This could be one of the reasons why the spiritual kinship between his concerto pieces and Eastern European gypsy music has hitherto gone unnoticed. However Vivaldi is known to have attended performances of his operas in Prague and also in Vienna which took him close to the Balkans, and it is likely that he encountered nomadic musicians during these excursions.
Furthermore Vivaldi met travellers from Eastern Europa practically on his doorsteps in Venice: The Ospedale della Pietà where Vivaldi was teaching lay on the Riva degli Schiavi, the Slavic Canal. One can easily imagine how musicians arriving from Eastern European countries would perform their music with their instruments and songs, practically on Vivaldi's doorstep!
