Program Notes

Although he wrote 39 operas, 73 sonatas and generous amounts of religious music, Baroque composer Antonio Vivaldi is best known for his concertos. Having learned the violin from his father, a Venetian barber, Vivaldi later penned one of the most popular string pieces in history, The Four Seasons.

Written in Vivaldi's distinctive style, the composition features melodies often broken into small phrases with forceful syncopated rhythms, making it a perfect subject for percussion adaptation.
