HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Antonio Vivaldi – The 4 Seasons (Musici/Michelucci)

Many thanks to our friend Mats for this evergreen
I find Roberto Michelucci’s playing to be just fine, with plenty of expressiveness, although somewhat more stolid rythmically. Besides, I sometimes enjoy hearing the pieces played with a little less passion and a little more transparency, and this one (despite being older than the Carmirelli version) comes closer to capturing the lean style that modern-instruments versions began to adapt following the success of “original instruments” versions. This undescores that I Musici was ahead of its time in many respects by championing the small-ensemble approach to the Baroque and Early Classical (e.g., Mozart) repertoires.

  1. How many versions of the 4 Seasons does a man need? When does one say enough is enough? I will tell you when I find out 🙂
    Many thanks Alf, strangely this version has escaped me up to now and I can´t wait to give it a listen.

  2. Buon giorno, signor: It is Christmas here, and you are 6 hours or more ahead of me!
    So I wish you and your family all the best, even a few moments of silent prayer to the One Who was born our Mediator between God and mankind.
    And thank you once again for all the pleasure you send our way.
    This Vivaldi Seasons is fantastic.. I remember you saying you had many different such recordings.
    Now, I have one more.
