A Fresh Take On 'The Four Seasons' On Limited Edition Vinyl LP!
Gramophone Artist Of The Year 2018!

Vivaldi's Four Seasons are among classical music's best loved works. However, most recordings adopt a similar approach to these scores, and familiarity has blunted the music's edge. Rachel Podger's new recording, accompanied by the star players of Brecon Baroque, aims to reset the clock - refocusing on the ingredients that make The Four Seasons so special and reminding listeners of the remarkable freshness of Vivaldi's musical imagination.

"There is probably no more inspirational musician working today than Podger" (Gramophone). Rachel Podger, "the queen of the baroque violin" (Sunday Times), has established herself as a leading interpreter of the Baroque and Classical music periods. She was the first woman to be awarded the prestigious Royal Academy of Music/Kohn Foundation Bach Prize in October 2015. On September 13, 2018, Rachel Podger was named Artist Of The Year at Gramophone's annual Classical Music Awards Ceremony.

"Working with Rachel Podger and Brecon Baroque has been an object lesson in starting anew and identifying the ingredients which make 'Le Quattro Stagioni' great works. Virtuosity is non-negotiable here and Rachel has it in abundance. But it's the color, poetry, vibrancy and evocative characterisation of weather, human warmth and fragility, captured by the dynamic flux of Rachel interlocking with her colleagues in Brecon Baroque, that deliver near-unimaginable qualities in this music." - Producer Jonathan Freeman-Attwood
