5.0 out of 5 stars "There are people capable of playing this?!"
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Guitar transcriptions do not do justice to The Four Seasons
Hearing snipets of two mintues or less from this cd was intriguing enough to make me buy the disk, but an entire cd of this is much too much. Vivaldi wrote some works for guitar, Four Seasons wasn't one of them and it doesn't lend itself to guitar transcription. I love guitar and I love Four Seasons, but the work is far better expressed on violin.

This review is from: Vivaldi: The Four Seasons (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.

The Amsterdam Guitar Trio has done some wonderful work, but repeated listening has done nothing to improve my opinion of this cd.

5.0 out of 5 stars Through four seasons in one hour, Dec 8 2002
This review is from: Vivaldi: The Four Seasons (Audio CD)
If you want to hear habitual "Four seasons" you will be disappointed. Music on this CD is something special. Sharp, crystal clear guitars voices make the amazing musical picture - not like a traditional performance. I very recommend this CD for people who likes pleasant surprises and guitar music.

By 
This review is from: Vivaldi: The Four Seasons (Audio CD)
Of the many renditions of the Four Seasons, this is among the best and it is one of my all time favorites. And it has topped my list of classical music in my collection.
