“History knows of 554 compositions by Vivaldi; of these 454 are concertos. A clever satirist said that Vivaldi had not written six hundred concertos, but had written the same concerto six hundred times; and sometimes it seems so. There is in these pieces much sawing of strings, much hurdy-gurdy continuo, an almost metronomic beating of time; even in the famous series called The Seasons (1725) there are some deserts of monotony. But there are also peaks of passionate vitality and wintry blasts, oases of dramatic conflict between soloists and orchestra, and grateful streams of melody. In such pieces Vivaldi brought the concerto grosso to an unprecedented excellence, which only Bach and Handel would surpass.”
–From Will Durant’s “Rousseau and Revolution” (1967).

In Florida and in State Government:
Note: Some proceedings below can be followed live on the Florida Channel. Most legislative proceedings can be followed through the Senate or House websites.
SCOTT, CABINET MEET: Gov. Rick Scott and the Florida Cabinet will take up a series of issues, including a proposal to spend $5.5 million to help limit future development on nearly 2,500 acres of ranch land in Highlands County. The proposal seeks to add the Sandy Gully property to the Rural and Family Lands Protection Program, which, through the use of “conservation easements,” restricts future development but allows owners to continue using land for such things as agricultural operations. The program, favored by Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, has been used 38 times in the past eight years, accounting for more than 47,000 acres across the state being put into conservation easements. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., Cabinet meeting room, the Capitol.)
ELECTIONS COMMISSION EYES LEGISLATIVE ISSUES: The Florida Elections Commission will take up numerous issues, including a proposed legislative budget request and a legislative recommendation. (Tuesday, 9 a.m., 1st District Court of Appeal, 2000 Drayton Dr., Tallahassee.)
