VIVALDI, A.: 4 Seasons (The) / Violin Concertos, Op. 8, Nos. 5-6 (Cho-Liang Lin, Sejong, A. Newman)

Vivaldiā€™s universally popular Four Seasons has become one of the most recorded pieces of classical music. The four concertos, with their virtuoso part for solo violinist, depict the changing seasons in a pastoral landscape with dazzling variety. Vivaldi evokes not only the changing atmospheric conditions, for example the dripping rain represented by the pizzicato violins in the second movement of Winter, but bird calls and animal cries, swaying grass, bubbling brooks, and human events such as drunkards sliding and slithering, and a man walking on ice. Formerly known as International Sejong Soloists, Sejong is a group of virtuoso string players including many well-known young soloists.
