The four seasons : concertos for violin, strings, and basso continuo, op. 8, nos. 1-4 by Antonio Vivaldi( )

32 editions published between 1994 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,540 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

CD: I Musici were instrumental in bringing the Venetian composer Vivaldi back to the attention of the modern world. The Four Seasons and I Musici have been closely tied together for five decades. The four concertos that make up The Four Seasons were originally prefaced by four sonnets and thus represent one of the earliest surviving examples of programme music. Its success lies in the fact that the story it unfolds is a human one. It says as much about the passing glories of man's achievement as of the falling leaves, as much about the birth, ageing and passing of ordinary people themselves as of the turning of the year. It is timeless music, and in this sense none could tell better the story of Venice, the timeless city in which it was born

Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden
