this was a ground breaking classical guitar recording, it is also a most beautiful version of the four seasons - very different from the screechy violins. Guitars have a much softer sound. unfortunately there are only three here! the sound is softer then a conventional version of the four seasons and has a heavenly quality. If you like classical guitar then this may well blow your mind!

HASH(0x998d7c0c) out of 5 stars "There are people capable of playing this?!" 28 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is what I think whenever listening to this album. Two years ago, I heard the last allegro of Winter from this album on a classical radio station. I bought it immediately (after I caught my breath). It was and still is one of the most amazing things I have ever heard - The Four Seasons played pizzicato on guitars. The trio's execution is flawless. The dynamic changes they somehow surprisingly master make this, I think, far more moving than the traditionally instrumented version we've all heard ten thousand times. I have had this disc for two years, and I still catch my breath. I am grateful that such skilled artists had the idea to present this work to us.

HASH(0x979fe6c0) out of 5 stars Very Amazing 19 Sept. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I heard this recording on my friends rca sound test cd. I went online the next day and found the album and bought it. It is the most amazing way I have ever heard the Four seasons played in my whole life. Anyone who loves the four seasons will love this cd. I actualy like this cd so much that I plan on buying 3 more copys for my friends as gifts.

HASH(0x979fe6b4) out of 5 stars If you love guitar and Vivaldi, this CD is for you 3 Dec. 2005
By Dom Miliano - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I am a sucker for acoustic guitar music. I used to be a fair guitar player in the (ugh) 1960's and '70's but them days are gone. I heard this first on NPR and grabbed it off Amazon the first chance I could. It's been in my car's CD player for weeks and I think it's wonderful. Yeah, a full orchestra version is richer, fuller and more complex. But you don't always eat Haut Cuisine do you? (If you do, call your cardiologist, your bypass is ready.) Some times you eat BBQ or a lobster roll right? This is a fun, different take on a familiar work. My car pool guy is stuck in the Don Johnson 1980's (think Miami Vice music) but he actually liked listening to these guys. Not exactly a rave, but an interesting side note.

Listen to the samples on the web and make your decision. I bet you reach for the plastic.

HASH(0x97ca9e6c) out of 5 stars Arguably BETTER than the Traditional Violin Version 6 Aug. 2009
By Gerard D. Launay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Let's face it. Everybody has heard Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" so often that it has lost its freshness, grace, and awe. To rediscover it, try this guitar version of the piece. Awesome is the only way to describe the performance. I don't know how they did it. What stands out in my mind is that the music sounds so fresh, even original. I even believe the moods of the seasons come out more clearly in guitar. That's particular true for the effect of "rain." Yes, this is one of those CD's that that I simply cannot recommend highly enough. For another variation, the "New Koto Ensemble of Tokyo" does an equally brilliant translation of Vivaldi' Four Seasons...another 5 star recording.

We may have seen and heard many different interpretations of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons". Since this one was done by not one but three guitars, I thought this would be unique. The more important thing to me, besides the sound, is the performance. On my first hearing, I thought that the trio did an excellent job of playing. The arrangement is also excellent. This is something I would recommend to those who are into classical music, as well as those who wouldn't mind getting another version of "The Four Seasons".
