At the turn of the 18th century, Vienna flourished as a capital for the arts like never before. With large-scale construction across the city, new art commissions, and an influx of musicians from across the continent, the city embraced the baroque like no other. Musically, the city became a melting pot of sorts, showcasing all of the leading European baroque styles and enticing then-famous composers, such as Antonio Vivaldi, to live within its walls.
