The Four Seasons
Le Quattro Stagioni is a set of four violin concertos by Antonio Vivaldi.
Composed in 1723, The Four Seasons is Vivaldi’s best-known work, and is among the most popular pieces of Baroque music.
The texture of each concerto is varied, each resembling its respective season.
The concertos were first published in 1725 as part of a set of twelve concerti, Vivaldi’s Op. 8, entitled Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione – The Contest between Harmony and Invention.
The first four concertos were designated Le quattro stagioni, each being named after a season.
Each one is in three movements, with a slow movement between two faster ones.
