5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Music! September 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
As a New Englander, I have always reveled in the passing of the seasons, and this music provides a perfect soundtrack to the wonders of nature. My mother has another version of this Vivaldi masterpiece by Itzhak Pearlman, but honestly I think this recording is better and more enjoyable. The three extra concertos for violin included on this disc are real treats, especially the Concerto for 2 violins in A minor. The liner notes also include the sonnets Vivaldi wrote to accompany his music, which I think are really fascinating. This may be a cheap cd, but it has the sound quality of a world class recording!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful and healing music.... February 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a great version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Each movement is played with great passion and expression. Whenever I hear this beautiful piece (or four pieces, rather!), I can see the seasons change in my imagination, as each song unfolds in its glory. Right now, as we are working through the tail end of our winter season, in Seattle, listening to Spring and Summer, especially, remind me that the sun will return (hopefully) in just a few short months. The Four Seasons is, at once, jubilant, and full of haunting reflection. This particular version melds great, heightened notes, accented by smoothly interwoven melody. Lovely.

Excellent clarity! Not only the beauty of the music but the mastering has is supreme. I not only can hear the birds in "Spring"
I can feel them!

By Sharon
Format:Audio CD
I received this as a gift after losing my John Holloway - Piero Toso - Jean-Claude Malgoire - Claudio Scimone version. My mother read the reviews for this and all were positive. I was a bit surprised that this is a #1 bestseller after opening and listening to it. I had to turn it off as the tempo was slightly too fast, the violins squealy when they should sound delicate and sprightly in "Spring" and in parts it sounds off key. I cannot return it as it is open, but ended up ordering my original version after finding the empty CD case in the basement. I gave it one star, because while I enjoy listening to classical music on a daily basis and it is like nails on a chalkboard for me, I see that others think this is a nice version. Maybe you will too, but I recommend listening to a sample portion of it on-line prior to purchasing. A safe option with really lovely sound is the version above which also gets 4 or 5 stars on Amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Recording August 17, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've always appreciated Vivaldi's "Spring," but wanted the entire Four Seasons Concerto. This CD delivers! Not only does this CD contain the entire Four Seasons Concerto, it also includes 3 other violin/cello concertos written by Vivaldi - and they are beautiful!

The recording is crisp, the violins intense and beautiful, and the rendering is very well done. This is a recording that one can either have playing in the background, or just sit and listen to and imagine the changing seasons while in their own home. Beautiful!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Familiar Music, Well Performed June 22, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
My only complaint is that the technical side of this album leaves something to be desired. It is my impression that modern technology is better at filtering out the audience's coughs and the little clicking sounds that come from instrument keys. But the Four Seasons is a terrific piece of music, so if you get a bargain on this one, buy it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed. June 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have several versions of Vivaldi's four seasons. And this is one of the absolute worst. I do not know why I bought it. My advice is: don't buy it. Still, the version with Roberto Michelucci with I Musici, is the best.
