They may be familiar, but Vivaldi’s Four Seasons are miracles of invention, wit and excitement. With “Britain’s finest period violinist” (BBC Music Magazine) and the OAE, the music is sure to sound as fresh as the day it was written. They are set in context by the rest of the programme which includes other engaging works by Vivaldi's contemporaries.

The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment is Anvil Arts Orchestra in Association
