Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

In one of the most popular violin concertos ever written, Vivaldi evokes the sounds of the world’s natural wonders-singing birds in springtime, raging summer thunderstorms, autumnal countryside scenes, and the icy beauty of winter. Mendelssohn echoes Vivaldi’s talent for musical storytelling in his ethereal Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
