iTunes Editors’ Notes

Emblematic of the Baroque period, which stretched from the early-1600s to the mid-1700s, these four masterpieces by the Italian composer Antonio Vivaldi vividly evoke each of the seasons for which they are named. Written for solo violin and orchestra, each “season” has three parts, with two quicker outer movements surrounding a slow middle one. Vivaldi’s use of contrasts and expressive, virtuosic effects was revolutionary in his time. In this spirit, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen’s unique approach uses modern instruments but limits the orchestra to one player per part. The result is at once intimate and dramatic, lush and invigorating.
