Vivaldi played on Japanese instruments with exotic locations
on January 13, 1999
I rented this video many years ago and am glad to see it available for purchase. It plays Vivaldi's four seasons on Japanese instruments giving it an exotic flavor without changing the classic tone. I love the pseudo-storyline with the geisha and all the festivals used to add to the exotic feel. There's an eeriness to Vivaldi's music, making it haunting rather than soothing when played on these instruments. A perfect addition to the floating world.
