Transcript of The Four Seasons by Vivaldi

The Four Seasons by Vivaldi His Lifetime He was born in 1679 in Venice
In 1703 he was ordained hence the nickname 'Il prete rosso'
In 1717/18 he was employed by the Governor of Mantua
It was in Mantua that he composed his most famous work
The Four Seasons was published in 1725 The Four Seasons A set of four violin concertos
Each represents a different season - i.e. Spring, Autumn
They were originally written to evoke the mood of four sonnets
Each sonnet depicted a particular season but it is not known who wrote them
The music closely follows the sonnets Spring - Concerto in E Major
Springtime is upon us.
The birds celebrate her return with festive song,
and murmuring streams are softly caressed by the breezes.
Thunderstorms, those heralds of Spring, roar, casting their dark mantle over heaven,
Then they die away to silence, and the birds take up their charming songs once more. Winter: Concerto in F Minor
Shivering, frozen mid the frosty
snow in biting, stinging winds; running to and fro to stamp one's icy feet, teeth chattering in the bitter chill.

Largo of Winter
To rest contentedly beside the hearthm while those outside are drenched by the pouring rain
