No, they haven't added four new seasons, it's still just spring, summer, fall, and winter, but in this disc you get to experience them all twice, in two different places at two different times. First, you will indeed hear the familiar 18th Century Venetian spring, courtesy of Antonio Vivaldi. After "La primavera," however, you will hop half way around the world for "Verano porte o," the summer section of 'The Four Seasons of Buenos Aires' by the great Argentine tango composer Astor Piazzolla, heard here in an orchestral arrangement by Leonid Desyatnikov. Then it's back up north for "L'estate" and south again for "Oto o porte o" as the inspirations of the Red Priest and the master of the bandoneon are interwoven throughout. This programming offers an interesting contrast in moods and attitudes, with the Vivaldi generally more bracing, especially in these quick and alert performances, and the Piazzolla more laid back and wistful, not lingering, but full of the bittersweet nostalgia so characteristic of his music.
