Notes & Reviews:

Two dazzling picture edits over one sumptuous soundtrack bring new life to Vivaldi's perennial work. Choose between the 'director's cut' with stunning images of the changing seasons, filmed at the National Botanic Garden of Wales, or the 'performance edit' with shots of Julia Fischer and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, in the garden's futuristic glass dome by Norman Foster.

"Fischer's playing is stylish and technically strong... with some gorgeously sonorous passage-work. The Academy's accompaniments are mint-condition." - Classic fM Magazine

"It's no surprise that Julia Fischer, with her looks of classic beauty, has been treated to a video debut...This recording...is clear and refreshing in a traditional way, with immaculate intonation from the soloist." - Gramophone
