Editorial Reviews

A city built on an archipelago of 117 islets, Venice is remarkable in many ways. Unsullied by modern traffic, its buildings retain much of their historic character and something of the magic of the place is reflected in our tour which visits a number of the principal sites and reflects the changing light, which casts a spell of its own. Violinist, priest and most prolific composer, Antonio Vivaldi was born in Venice in 1678 and spent most of his life there, associated for much of the time with the Ospedale della Pietà, a charitable institution for girls, with a strong musical tradition. The music for the tour is taken from his collection of twelve concertos, Il Cimento dell'Armonia e dell'Inventione (The Contest of Harmony and Invention), published in Paris in 1725.Venice is one of the most famous of all cities, its buildings reflecting its former commercial importance and wealth. Its canals and its position at the head of the Adriatic have given it a unique character that has continued to attract visitors. The music included here is either associated directly with Venice or familiar there in the heyday of the Serenissima. It includes music by the Venetian composers Vivaldi and Marcello, and by Domenico Scarlatti, Neapolitan by birth, who was sent to study there by his father.

I have collected as many 'Nature - Travel - Music" DVDs (150) and have placed them in two 3-ring binders. (A Space-Saver, together with any associated material). These DVDs mostly contain Classical Music & NO DIALOGUE. I Have traveled to most of the locations and it is nice to visual memories of our pasts. And am violently resentful of being 'Talked-Down to" by some idiotic & insincere narrator.
As I have stated in the past; these DVDs are "Sort-of-a-Poor Mans Travelogue"..
The Music is mostly played by Minor European orchestras and is clearly stated on the label & in the DVD.

This musical journey was like being there, but from the comfort of our own home. When viewed on a big screen HDTV it's truly a great experience.
We're now planning to visit Venice. We'll probably have to take one of those guided tours just to get the kind of detailed info that came with the musical journey. Wonderful!
Thank You!

Nice music, good photography. Some narration would have been nice but the captions for Act 1, Act 2, and so forth were helpful. Video was much better than I had anticipated.
