Okay, so Arnie Roth is not the greatest violinist of our times, nor is this the greatest version of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, BUT, Patrick Stewarts wonderful reading of Vivaldi's poetry written along with the concertos a unique and very pleasing addition to any classical library.

This may seem like another recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, but it isn't. This version adds another element that Vivaldi included in his writing that few people apply today.
Vivaldi originally wrote poems to go along with each season, and Patrick Stewart reads the poetry here. He does a WONDERFUL job, putting expression and feeling into each poem.
Otherwise, this is not my favorite recording of the Four Seasons, but it still is pretty good. Stewart adds a wonderful element to the CD, which is the main reason I got it.
Also the CD art is different on my copy. It shows Arnie Roth and Patrick Stewart on the cover... I don't know I guess they changed it.
Wonderful version!

Put this CD on when you want to wander around your home or at work and be relaxed and refreshed. Better yet, put it on when and simply enjoy the poetry and music blended together. It's like air freshener for your head.

You have to buy this Four Seasons, even if you have several versions already.

It includes, as narration, Vivaldi's own written descriptions of the seasons (translated into English of course).

This immensely enhances the atmosphere, almost making you feel you are experiencing the seasons yourself! (Actually, I wish we could have the narration in the original Italian too, just as Vivaldi would have spoken it.)

The musical performance also is excellent.
