Notes & Reviews:

With this disc Sarah Chang takes on one of the most well-known warhorses of the classical repertoire: Vivaldi's Four Seasons. The challenge she faces is to bring freshness and spontaneity to what may well be the most familiar work in classical music. Aiding her in this is the Grammy Award-winning Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and together they rise to the occasion, injecting new life into the well-worn masterpiece.

BBC Music Magazine
Chang's ravishing, seamless cantabile, captivating subtlety of dynamic and tone colour, and exquisite timing provide musical balm where other versions appear intent on lacerating the eardrums.

Gramophone Magazine
... Sarah Chang and the Orpheus CO serve up predictably fine performances, with sweetly burnished tone from the soloist and first-rate ensemble-playing.
