Vivaldis The Four Seasons, with its clear program depicting natures cycle of the seasons, is probably the most popular music in the entire classical repertory.

In addition to this perennial favorite, 101 Vivaldi includes almost another six hours of music by the Red Priest, including the uplifting Gloria, Guitar Concerto in D with its beautiful slow movement, and the thrilling Concerto for Two Trumpets.

Because of the relatively short length of individual movements, this set is able to offer no fewer than 38 complete works, making it perfect for both beginners and collectors.

Includes recordings by some of Deccas greatest exponents of Vivaldis music such as Salvatore Accardo, Eduardo Fernandez, Severino Gazzelloni, Emma Kirkby, Neville Marriner, Simon Preston and Heinrich Schiff.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
