'Fischer injects vivacity and attention to detail in her interpretation of the familiar work and the images in both edits are a delight' AD-LIB

Two dazzling picture edits over one sumptuous soundtrack bring new life to Vivaldi's perennial work. Choose between the 'director's cut' with stunning images of the changing seasons, filmed at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, or the 'performance edit' with shots of Julia Fischer and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, in the garden's futuristic glass dome by Norman Foster.

The sensational young violinist Julia Fischer brings a fresh and sparkling interpretation of this popular work.
