One of the best-loved and most endearing works of the late Baroque, Vivaldi's set of Violin Concertos The Four Seasons Op.8 are presented here in an authoritative Barenreiter Urtext edition.
This publication of Vivaldi’s masterpiece is a critical performing edition of the Manchester manuscript source, which originates from Vivaldi’s circle and represents an alternative (in many cases, more explicit) version of these famous concertos than the first printed edition published by Le Cene in Amsterdam in 1725.The Manchester source has until now not been used as the primary basis for a modern performing edition, and offers new readings and evidence for players and listeners alike.
With Christopher Hogwood’s new edition a fresh gust of wind has taken hold of The Four Seasons.
