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(0x9b6cb8c4) 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.

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.

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!

This is the second review of the Four Seasons performed on modern instruments that I am writing. I previously reviewed the version by Pinchas Zuckerman and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra (Vivaldi: The Four Seasons and other Baroque Works). Itzhak Perlman's version, performed with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, is really lively and is what I would call a true romantic version of Vivaldi's masterpiece. Here, no ornaments are performed besides the ones specified in the sheet music. There are no improvisations on the bass except in the second movement of the Autumn concerto. However, this improvisation follows exactly the indications written by Vivaldi, namely with arpeggios of the bass chord.

The legato phrasings are magnificent. Perlman's violin is singing, and the sound engineer did a great job bringing the solo violin up front. It sounded like he was playing in my living room! We can feel the piano and forte effects in the different sections, one of the highlights being the storm in the third movement of Summer. Here, the orchestra plays fortissimo and uses crescendos to highlight the intensity of some sections. This recording proves that Vivaldi's concertos, although shorter than most violin concertos of the Romantic period, are just masterpieces as Beethoven's or Mendelssohn's.

The recording offers a bonus of three less-known violin concertos, this time performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. The first two use the minor scale, the third one is more typical of Vivaldi's output with the use of the bright key of A major. These lively concertos, along with the famous Four Seasons, justifies that Vivaldi was a true master in the art of violin. And so is Itzhak Perlman.
