Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons

In his day, Vivaldi, an ordained cleric, was known as the “Red Priest” because of his striking red hair. But it’s his violin virtuosity and the hundreds of concertos he composed for the instrument that have earned him his place in music history. The Four Seasons, his most beloved work, is a masterful example of Baroque program music in which the composer paints vivid depictions of bird song, bagpipes, thunderstorms, and drunken peasants.
