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. Katarina searches throughout Venice for clues to her origins, and finally discovers the secret of her true family.
