From the creators of the bestselling Beethoven Lives Upstairs, Tchaikovsky Discovers America and Hallelujah Handel, comes a touching tale featuring Antonio Vivaldi. The story centres around Katarina, a young and gifted violinist, who is sent to study music at the orphanage in Venice where Vivaldi was the musical director for most of his life.
