How do you feel when you hear Vivaldi

A catchy tune from Italy - Antonio Vivaldi: "Le quattro stagioni"

  • Good evening

    The new recording is a purely chamber music recording

    with Sigiswald Kuijken and "La Petite Bande":

    A 1st and 2nd violin, viola, harpsichord and, as the only "string bass", a violoncello da Spalla ", a Schuldercello that is held horizontally in front of the chest or against the right shoulder.

    Greetings from the Palatinate

  • Hello.

    I had recently heard the "Vier Jahreszeiten" on the radio with (I think) Janine Jansen and a small, almost chamber music line-up. I liked that quite a lot (at least the "summer" that was played). Does anyone know the recording?

    Greetings, l.

    Take a look above, on the first page of this thread.
    M. E. a rather boring recording, with an almost outrageous playing time (no additions). The recording received quite a lot of praise in a trade journal at the time. However, I am glad that I saved the money.

    My favorite interpretation is by far that of Anne-Sophie Mutter and the Trondheim Soloists. This recording is bursting with joy and is also played with a very small "orchestra". I can recommend this recording to anyone who is not generally set against occasionally a little extreme tempos.

    Show all

    The recording is a family co-production and is now very popular. The work appears even more filigree due to the chamber music line-up.

    Kind regards, Siegfried

  • one of my favorites, together with the L'estro armonico cycle, the central Vivaldi par excellence ... I have this pizza in 4 recordings, with Jacques Loussier's currently my favorite.

  • Hello Hello!

    Paul? now also has the four seasons * - hihi

    on record, sensationally caught in my clutches - I'm a joy

    I can't get bored

    oh yes - record like new - hehe - mostly like this with classic LPs

    well - should be from a series: GREAT COMPOSERS and their music
    revised by Vittorio Negri
    Violin: Felix Ayo
    whoever they are

    I'll put the needle on again in a moment: beatnik:

    * Le quattro stagioni - Vivaldi - hihi

  • After initial doubts, I bought it and found it to be quite good:


    The young lady can do something!

    2 more very good recordings, which contain the 4 seasons:

    Kind regards, Siegfried

  • Andrew Manze, violin; Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra; Direction: Ton Koopman

    A calm and precise HIP recording that I like very much.

    There are still two oboe concerts included.

  • I have three versions of the 4 seasons:

    Mother / Karajan
    Kennedy the 1st
    Janine Jansen

    Mutter / Karajan was my first CD version, the LP with Marriner / St. Martins in the Fields, which I loved to listen to in the late 1970s, somehow got away.
    Muter / Karajan is widescreen Vivaldi and no longer my taste.

    Kennedy had to come here because of the hype about the recording at the time.
    Sometimes played blatantly "against the grain", I still like to play them nowadays.

    I think Jansen is good because the small line-up creates a transparency that is good for this music.
    I agree with Siegfried, the lady can do something!

    M-Müller makes me want to try Loussier too.
    Just don't let boredom arise:]

  • I own the recording with Viktoria Mullova and especially love the "winter". Just breathtaking!

    I know of another recording with Anne-Sophie Mutter that I don't like nearly as much.

    ... although it is more modern ...

    I bought it when it first appeared and found it neither impressive nor terrible;

    me this is here

    still the dearest, she was my first and through her I got to know and love the work and shot it almost every day: lips:

  • Hello,

    So, the forum is starting to cost me money - I had to support the Viennese record stores: wacky: and have now bought two Quattro Stagioni recordings -

    the Harnoncourt recording and the version of "Il Giardion Armonico" that - to be honest - knocked my socks off. So "rocky" and - at least that's how I feel - almost brutally played, that was a real eye-opener for me

    In my mother's pool I found the recording ex 1986 with Stern / Perlman / Mintz / Zukerman (Israel Philharmonic Orchestra - Mehta), which seems really sweet and harmless.

    To cut a long story short - compared to the Giardino, the Harnoncourt recording is almost too good for my taste.

    Now the acclaimed recording of Carmignola might still appeal to me - what can I expect? How do you compare this to the three I already have?

    I would be very grateful for help and tips: lips:

    P.S. Vivaldi's 5 violin concertos with Viktoria Mullova / Il Giardino Armonico are also wonderful

  • Hello,

    Spring is apparently also in Frongraisch and Vivaldi's setting was so popular there that Michel Corrette made a cover version of it. He has underlined the text of the Laudate Dominum and added soloists and choir to the score. The piece can be heard on the following recently released CD:

    Jacques Antoine Denoye: Mass à Grand Choeur
    Michel Corrette: Laudate Dominum after Vivaldi's concert "Der Frühling"

    Gauthier, Pozo, unicorn, Georgel,
    La Maitrise de Bretagne, Orchester du Parlement de Musique
    Martin Gester

    Nice version! :]

    But the big trade fair by Jacques Antoine Denoye, the actual main work of the CD, is also very nice, even if JPC says it is the other way around. It is interesting because there weren't too many complete mass settings from France in the middle of the 18th century, and certainly not with such a large cast.

    kind regards,
    Thomas

    Salu,

    But with that he has created nothing new, just taken up a Vivaldic parody: Vivaldi himself has the opening theme of "La Primavera", the opening choir with soprano solo from Dorilla in Tempe RV 709 with the text Dell 'aura al sussurrar added.

    Corrette parodied the whole concert, not just one theme from it. But nobody said they did anything new with it ...

  • My path to total stagioni enthusiasm apparently led through Terry Riley.

    (With a detour via Leonardo Vinci.)

    (I do not want to consider that the increasing acceptance that I now have towards the 80s Pinnock recording with its somewhat too steadily rapid tempi could also be attributed to "In C".)

    Apart from the tempos, you shouldn't reproach the 80s pinnock, it's also quite different in terms of sound.

    (Perhaps my original problem with the Pinnock 80s was that - since I grew up in the 80s - the catchy-chart character of the music seemed clearer to me than in a more recent recording?)

    So absurdly yesterday I had a huge "aha experience" with this great music (after enjoying concertos by Corelli, Torelli, dall'Abaco, Albinoni, Bonporti, Manfredini and Durante in the same listening position). Finally, instead of the somewhat unsatisfied "this chart music" instead of the many interesting personal styles, "the" but it is completely different and much more ingenious "came in. In any case, I have a talent for making the most comfortable things the most uncomfortable for me. But with the conflicting spagettis, I finally seem to have overcome that and Vivaldi's performance seems to me more and more epoch-making (should I copy a few specialist texts now?)
