This is, in my opinion, not the definitive recording of The Four Seasons but an almost perfect one. The tempo, the passion of the playing, the conducting – all perfect. Most versions are much too legato and lack spirit, but this is great. A must-have for any Vivaldi fan and the evidence, that out there in this world, there are so many great artists without a “great” name, who deserve all our respect and admiration.

Reposted – now with FF links The “Preludio Sinfonico” was composed in 1876 and the “Capriccio Sinfonico” in 1883. As in the case of the Messa, here you will find many features of the later Puccini. The “Capriccio” anticipates many themes we will meet in “La Bohème”.
Here Claudio Scimone conducts the Orchestre National de l’Opéra de Monte-Carlo in a very fine and idiomatic performance. The sound is anyway very good, vivid, clean and warm.
