Notes & Reviews:
This acclaimed recording of Vivaldi's popular Four Seasons concertos makes a welcome return on CD. Each of the four concertos has a different soloist, a decision believed to match Vivaldi's original practice more closely than the usual modern allocation to a single player. The sololists here are Christopher Hirons (Spring), John Holloway (Summer), Alison Bury (Autumn) and Catherine Mackintosh (Winter).
With a different soloist for each of the four concertos, Hogwood directs the Academy of Ancient Music in lively performances with exceptionally imaginative use of continuo contrasts... ..These performances have a high place among authentic version
