Notes & Reviews:

Unorthodox yet always fascinating, Hermann Scherchen considered routine a deadly enemy of art and he avoided falling into the trap of descriptive music. As is such, the Four Seasons’ descriptive sonnets that were attributed to the composer are not referenced here. After listening to this version, it is difficult to imagine that anyone will continue to consider this Vivaldi work as minor or negligible.
