The Frankfurt nobleman Uffenbach met Vivaldi during the Carnival of 1715; the Dresden violinist, Pisendel, “took formal lessons on the violin”6 from Vivaldi, who dedicated five violin sonatas and six violin concertos (in manuscript) to him during the German’s stay in the city in 1716. In his diary, Uffenbach provided a particularly vivid account of the musician’s varied artistic activities. The German patrician attended the Teatro Sant’Angelo four times between 4 February and 4 March, three times for performances of the pastiche Nerone fatto Cesare (RV 724) arranged by Vivaldi.
