Format: Audio CD
Not only does this CD include the Four Seasons concertos, but also 3 other violin concertos (including Il Sospetto, L'estro armonico No. 6, and La Stravaganza #5) making it a good value for the money. Perlman's style is warm, lush and brilliant, giving a more emotional rendition of Vivaldi, versus the usual austere clockwork interpretation. I rather enjoy the extra feeling and lushness that Perlman brings to Vivaldi. By the way, L'estro armonico #6 is familiar to many violin students as a student concerto, and listening to Perlman is very motivating.

I tremendously enjoy listening to this CD. I am not a major music buff, but this version of the four seasons sounds exactly like what I think it should: light, not overly melodramatic, yet surprisingly deep and emotional in all the right spots. I would highly recommend this disk.

HASH(0xa601cd98) out of 5 stars Great CD chronicling Vivaldi's Four Seasons Dec 7 2005
By Paul Mosier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Having a taste for classical music led me to buy this particular CD and also being a fan of violin concertos. Despite my bias, I must say this version of the Four Seasons (with some other concertos) is for any who even likes to listen to music, much less of the classical genre. The London Philharmonic complement Itzhak Perlman splendidly. Overall, the value of the CD is amazing. You get 21 tracks. There were a few small miscues in the harmony, but they were few and far between; not to mention I am very critical of instrumentals. 9 out of 10.

HASH(0xa6366258) out of 5 stars Amazing price for an amazing CD Jan. 1 2009
By LHG - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This recording of Vivaldi's "The Four Seasons" with Itzhak Perlman at the violin is absolutely amazing! The tempos are not too fast, but not too slow, and Perlman plays with perfection and attention to detail. Also included are three more of Vivaldi's violin concertos, which shouldn't be missed!

Who can go wrong with Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Very good orchestration provides for excellent listening. Although I am not as familiar with the other Concertos; I am finding them to be just as glorious as the Seasons.

HASH(0xa601fe4c) out of 5 stars It's all about the violin concertos Dec 5 2006
By Biblibio - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Everybody knows "The Four Seasons". Spring is one of the best known classical pieces of all times. Perlman's playing is lovely and the music is superb and famous for a reason, but it is my personal opinion that what is truly wonderful here is the small selection of violin concertos.

These concertos are rather well known to those who are knowledgable in classical music or play an instrument (violin, in this case). To the rest of the world they are much less known, and that is a pity. These are wonderful pieces of music, played incredibly with great sound.

Once you get into the smaller, finer details, you also have to notice the great price that this is offered for. With great famous pieces accompanied by some amazing violin concertos (Il Sospetto is my favorite of them all) at a low price, there is no doubt about it; this is a great CD to purchase.
