The Violinist of Venice: A Story of Vivaldi

  • Following her mother's death, the one source of joy for Adriana d'Amato is her music. Now eighteen, she refuses to let her strict father stop her from pursuing her dreams and begins to take secret violin lessons from virtuoso Antonio Vivaldi. Their relationship soon evolves into a passionate, and forbidden, love affair - for Adriana's father is intent on her marrying a member of the patrician class and Vivaldi is a man of the Church. Their affair must end upon Adriana's marriage, but when Vivaldi is forced to choose between his lover and his music, the repercussions will haunt their lives in ways they never imagined.

    Spanning more than thirty years, The Violinist of Venice is a story of music and ambition, but most of all, passion.
