    Default Vivaldi - The Movie

    More info on my site at http://classicalmusicbroadcast.com, but the rumor is that Joseph Fiennes will play the master himself.

    Could "The Four Seasons" be the new "Amadeus", and bring some new listeners to our favorite format?

    I look forward to the Vivaldi movie when it comes out!

    I for one, watched the movie "Amadeus" for the 1st time about 3 months ago. I absolutely loved it, and can't believe I had not seen it sooner!

    I then had to watch it again a few weeks later.

    I instantly fell in love with several of Mozart's works, such as the Don Giovanni Overture, the Symphony # 25 and the beautiful Gran Partita.

    A wonderfully entertaining film!

    I hope this one doesn't have a limited release like Copying Beethoven did. I wonder who plays Bach.

    What ever happened to Copying Beethoven. I'd heard about that film many years ago.

    Yes, I remember reading in a movie magazine that "a film was being planned about Beethoven's life". I assume it was this one, as I found trailers for it a few months ago.

    The actor is burnett but Vivaldi was a ginger!

    Not for no reason he was called the red priest! This is called history abuse! I hope this actor will change his hair color for the movie because it matters alot the he was red haired.

    I wholeheartedly agree here. The colour of his hair was a vital attribute! It's like having a clean shaven Chaplin wearing a baseball cap!

    Always good to see this kind of movie. I hope they will changed the story as in Amadeus which is not really accurate.
    At first, I discovered the wonders of classical music through the marvels of its baroque period and especially those from Mr. Handel, which explain my forum nickname. About 10 years ago, my interest leaned over classical period and Herr Haydn's production. The music bus recently drove me to the early 1800s. Where will it end?

    Did you see the cast? Just women. I can see the scenario: Vivaldi, the priest, is tempted by women and feel this passion through music. Argh.

    I hope I am totally wrong.
