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!

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!

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!

Having been a native New Englander for my entire life, I can say that this timeless masterpiece by one of the greatest composers from the Baroque period is definitely one to which I can closely relate. The periodic consistency of the seasons is an everlasting cycle that is a part of the way how we all live out lives and carry out our activities on a year-by-year basis. Whenever I just want to be soothed into relaxation after a hard day's work or otherwise, this really does fill the bill - and this is coming from a die-hard heavy metal freak!

Every single piece just pierces the very soul with the pure, entrancing magic for which this sort of music is known. Whether slow and steady or fast and driving, the articulation and layering of the varying pitches of string instruments is right on the mark every step of the way, and holds the listener's attention. There is quite a lot I could say about this magnificent musical suite that I have already said about those by other composers, such as Beethoven, Wagner or Holst, but I will not repeat myself here.

Honestly, right along with Beethoven's "Ode to Joy," Wagner's "Die Walkure," and Holst's "The Planets," Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" stands as one of the greatest masterpieces of musical magic of all time, hands down. This is REAL music, unlike any of that meaningless, talentless, classless, non-artistic rap, pop, techno, house, dubstep or EDM trash that people like to call "music" nowadays. I should not even have to say this, as it is just common sense.

This is music for people who know what music is, no questions asked. There is a reason that people still listen to and talk about it in reverential tones, even to this day. Anyways, just buy this already.

My doubts that this would not be a quality recording were quickly put to rest as I listened to this CD during my morning commute over several days. This recording is a treat both for the music and the price.

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.

I don't have a musical background, but recently I decided to start collecting great orchestral works. So consider this review from someone learning to appreciate classical music.

After listening twice to this CD, I can understand why The Four Seasons and Antonio Vivaldi himself are considered greats. Before my second listen, I discovered in the CD notes that The Four Seasons were part of a larger work and that Vivaldi had written sonnets to go with each movement for a particular season which were reprinted. After reading said sonnets, The Four Seasons came even more alive than the first time I had listen to the work.

The other three concertos contained on this CD were great as well, I particularlly liked Concerto for 2 Violins and Cello in D minor. However that doesn't mean I didn't like either Concerto for 2 Violins in A minor or Concerto for 2 Violins in G minor, but I liked the addition of the cello to a CD which was dominated by violins.

If you're like myself and starting out to collect classical music, this is a CD you should buy.
