This all-star live recording of Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, made at the Huberman Festival in Israel in 1982, features Itzhak Perlman,  Isaac Stern,  Pinchas Zukerman, and Shlomo Mintz, with Zubin Mehta conducting.

“…Having four star violinists dish up a season apiece is a lot of fun, especially if you're interested in comparing styles and sounds. Mintz is bright and wiry; Perlman rich, brilliant and intense; Zukerman dark and suave; and Stern has that marvelous, warm, "old-school" sound with an almost vocal vibrato. And the violins of the Israel Philharmonic? They play as though every one of them could step up and take a solo, no doubt because having four luminaries on the stage made them want to give of their best.” - Amazon.com
