Antonio Vivaldi's The 4 Seasons are familiar concertos that are brought to life as sights are captured in the city of Venice. The pace of the music seems perfect for strolling at home on your treadmill as you dissolve into the atmosphere of Venice and wander across bridges, take a ride in a gondola and watch a storm approaching as the sky darkens. The seasons are beautifully portrayed with plenty of attention given to breathtaking scenic views of the water and city from all angles. Fisherman work on their boats and a violin maker sands pieces of wood to perfection. City life, parades, people meeting along the street, artists and craftsman at work gives this a realistic and wistful mood. At one point you are wandering along walkways with tourists and the next you are experiencing the romance of the season. Each vision brings unique moods as the city moves from a bustling tourist attraction to a cold silent winter.

I have many different versions of "the four seasons" but after hearing on TV Il Giardino Armonico play it. I just had to buy the CD. So I had high expectations and was expecting to see the orchestra all the time. Enjoying the beautiful music and divine performance. But most of the time I just see Venice. That information was not clear when I bought the DVD. If you like to look at a tourist DVD about an overrated Italian city while listening to divine music, then this is maybe your choice. But if you expect to see a great orchestra perform the best classical piece of music, then you will be disappointed.
