    I don't know why he said that. I just listened to Metamorphosis I. It's easy to follow.

    If Vivaldi had said it I'd understand it. Perhaps a religious comment?

    Poor Vivaldi. Doesn’t he at least get credit for all the gifted young female students he nurtured? He also wrote one of the most famous works of all time and so much of his music is full of energy and vitality. He didn’t write the same pieces over and over and many listeners hold him in high regard. According to some musicologists, even Bach himself was influenced by him.

    One thing I wonder about listening with full concentration, particularly to very familiar music in a new-to-you performance, is how one avoids a conversation with one's inner critic. To me the worst thing I can do when listening to music (whether I am reading book or working as well or just listening to the music) is to make judgments about what I am hearing. That has to wait for the end when the cumulative impact is clear.
