As one of the great Baroque composers, Antonio Vivaldi's (1678-1741) compositions remain hugely popular to this day. The Four Seasons is his best-known work and therefore, Jean-Claude Veilhan's transcription for Recorder was well-received for making the highly acclaimed work more accessible.
Vivaldi's Four Seasons were originally published in 1725 as a Violin Concerto. Each movement's texture varies depending on which season it depicts. Veilhan's adaption for Recorder includes articulation, phrasing and performance directions necessary to the instrument. For all aspiring solo Recorder players of the Baroque genre, Veilhan's transcription of Vivaldi's Four Seasons cannot be missed.
