Overview

Picking up where the crowd-pleasing Pachelbel's Greatest Hit left off, The Ultimate Four Seasons: Vivaldi's Greatest Hit presents the Venetian composer's ever-popular set of concertos in performances by a widely varied group of musicians. Each movement is played by a different ensemble and on different instruments, from violinists Vladimir Spivakov and Gottfried von der Goltz to flutists James Galway and Ransom Williams to guitarists Kazuhito Yamashita and Larry Coryell. Even electric violinist Tracy Silverman and the Modern Mandolin Quartet get in on the act. It's a collection as diverse and multi-colored as Vivaldi's wonderful music itself.
