The Four Seasons Italian : Le quattro stagioni is a group of four violin concerti by Italian composer Antonio Vivaldieach of which gives musical expression to a season of the year.
They were written around — and published in in Amsterdamtogether with eight additional concerti, as Il cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione The Contest Between Harmony and Invention. The Four Seasons is the best known of Vivaldi's works. Though three of the concerti are wholly original, the first, "Spring", borrows motifs from a sinfonia in the first act of Vivaldi's contemporaneous opera Il Giustino. The inspiration for the concertos is not the countryside around Mantuaas initially supposed, where Vivaldi was living at the time, since according to Karl Heller  they could have been written as early as —, while Vivaldi was engaged with the court of Mantua only in They were a revolution in musical conception: in them Vivaldi represented flowing creeks, singing birds of different species, each specifically characterizeda shepherd and his barking dog, buzzing flies, storms, drunken dancers, hunting parties from both the hunters' and the prey's point of view, frozen landscapes, and warm winter Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection . Unusually for the period, Vivaldi published the concerti with accompanying sonnets possibly written by the composer himself that elucidated what it was in the spirit Rock N Roll (Explicit Version) - Avril Lavigne - Rock N Roll each season that his music was intended to evoke.
The concerti therefore stand as one of the earliest and most detailed examples of what would come to be called program music —i. Vivaldi took great pains to relate his music to the texts of the poems, translating the poetic lines themselves directly into the music on the page.
For example, in the middle section of "Spring", when the goatherd sleeps, his barking dog can be heard in the viola section. The music is elsewhere similarly evocative of other natural sounds. Vivaldi divided each concerto into three movements fast—slow—fastand, likewise, each linked sonnet into three sections.
A performance of all four concerti may take about 40—43 minutes. Approximate timings of the individual concerti: . There is some debate as to whether the four concertos were written to accompany four sonnets or vice versa. Regardless of the sonnets' authorship, The Four Seasons can be classified as program musicinstrumental music intended to evoke something extra-musical,  and an art form which Vivaldi was determined to prove sophisticated enough to be taken seriously.
In addition to these sonnets, Vivaldi provided instructions such as "The barking dog" in the second movement of "Spring""Languor caused by the heat" in the first movement of "Summer"and "the drunkards have fallen asleep" in the second movement of "Autumn".
Allegro Di pastoral Zampogna al suon festante Danzan Ninfe e Pastor nel tetto amato Di primavera all' apparir brillante. Springtime is upon us. The birds celebrate her return with festive song, and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes. Thunderstorms, those heralds of Spring, roar, casting their dark mantle over heaven, Then they die away to silence, and the birds take up their charming songs once more. Largo On the flower-strewn meadow, with leafy branches rustling overhead, the goat-herd sleeps, his faithful dog beside him.
Allegro Led by the festive sound of rustic bagpipes, nymphs and shepherds lightly dance beneath the brilliant canopy of spring. Under a hard season, fired up by the sun Languishes man, languishes the flock and burns the pine We hear the cuckoo's voice; then sweet songs of the turtledove and finch are heard. Soft breezes stir the air, but threatening the North Wind sweeps them suddenly aside. The shepherd trembles, fearing violent storms and his fate.
Adagio e piano — Presto e forte The fear of lightning and fierce thunder Robs his tired limbs of rest As gnats and flies buzz furiously around. Presto Alas, his fears were justified The Heavens thunder and roar and with hail Cut the head off the wheat and damages the grain.
Celebra il Vilanel con balli e Canti Del felice raccolto il bel piacere E del liquor de Bacco accesi tanti Finiscono col Sonno il lor godere. Celebrates the peasant, with songs and dances, The pleasure of a bountiful harvest.
And fired up by Bacchus' liquor, many end their revelry in sleep. Adagio molto Everyone is made to forget their cares and to sing and dance By the air which is tempered with pleasure And by the season that invites so many, many Out of their sweetest slumber to fine enjoyment Allegro The hunters emerge at the new dawn, And with horns and dogs and guns depart upon their hunting The beast flees and they follow its trail; Terrified and tired of the great noise Of guns and dogs, the beast, wounded, threatens Languidly to flee, but harried, dies.
To tremble from cold in the icy snow, In the harsh breath of a horrid wind; To run, stamping one's feet every moment, Our teeth chattering in the extreme cold Largo Before the fire to pass peaceful, Contented days while the rain outside pours down.
Allegro We tread the icy path Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection and cautiously, for fear of tripping and falling. Then turn abruptly, slip, crash on the ground and, rising, hasten on across the ice lest it cracks up.

Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection is a compact disc of a recording made by the violinist Alfredo Campoli taken from acetates of a French radio broadcast; these are thought to date from early in Molinari's recording was made for Cetra, and was issued in Italy and subsequently in the United States on six double-sided 78sin the s.
It was then reissued on long-playing album inand, later, on compact disc. The first American recording was made in the final week of by the violinist Louis Kaufman. The Argo recording by the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields conducted by Neville Marriner and featuring the soloist Alan Loveday sold over half a million copies; it became the ensemble's first-ever gold record.
I Solisti di Zagreb, under the baton of Antonio Janigro with Jan Tomasow as violin soloist and Anton Heiller on harpsichord, followed in on the Vanguard label, further reissued under the Philips and other labels.
Wilfrid Mellersan English music critic, musicologist and composer wrote of this performance, "the soloists phrase their lyricism beautifully. Janigro reveals his talent for conducting, which competes with his considerable talent for cello playing.
I will attempt to convey to you how much this performance means to me, and might mean to you, as well. What a change it was — a window into a new world; music is fast, precise and Scarborough Fair - Various - Audio Fair Sampler to life, the intonation is correct, the continuo appropriate, and the violin of beautiful sound in fitting correlation with the Zagreb Soloists. The self-assured and fine tone of Jan Tomasow's solo violin relates perfectly with the Soloists; the entire performance is impregnated with the spirit of Janigro's perfectionism, leaving the music and its soul fully exposed.
It had been for a long time the only performance I could listen to. Only during [the] last decade some new kids, playing authentic instruments, have offered to me similar pleasure and insights into the music of Antonio Vivaldi and, to my great pleasure, Janigro's performance is no longer the only choice for me.
In my opinion, this also shows how Janigro's performance in co-operation with the Zagreb Soloists was far ahead its time, as corroborated by Igor Stravinskywho claimed that it was the most beautiful performance of Le Quattro Staggioni he had ever heard, a statement which I only recently learned about.
It was much later that I discovered the excellence of the recording as Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection.
At that time, the Zagreb Soloists were recording for Vanguard, mostly in Vienna at various locations, and this particular recording was made in at Rotenturmstrassaal.
Recording was produced by Seymour Solomon, chief producer Черный Вурдалак - Сектор Газа - Восставший Из Ада the entire edition, who would personally come from the USA to oversee every recording to be made Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection the Zagreb Soloists, whereas the Vanguard branch in Vienna "Amadeo" was in charge of the organisation.
Der Sommer: Allegro Non Molto - Various - The Greatest Classical Collection gratitude to one of the founders of the Zagreb Soloists, Mr. Janigro was a perfectionist, often rather merciless, not only in matters of music but also in terms of the sound, so he participated directly and intensely in [the] recording process, which was quite uncommon at that time. Nothing I have heard changes my view that the best Seasons ever was performed by Jan Tonight - Various - Rock-Out ! and I Solisti di Zagreb and beautifully recorded by Vanguard at the very beginning of the stereo era.
If money and space are no obstacle, it might be worth having. Nigel Kennedy's recording of The Four Seasons with the English Chamber Orchestra sold over two million copies, becoming one of the best-selling classical works ever.
