Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) composed The Four Seasons as violin concerti, but the timeless beauty of the music and its broad popular appeal have resulted in musicians of all kinds appropriating it for their own use. This arrangement for classical guitar of the Largo from “Winter” is by Russian guitarist Daria Semikina.

Happy birthday, Antonio

Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) composed this mandolin concerto in 1725, while he was serving as violin master and composer-in-residence at an orphanage in Venice. It’s performed here by mandolinist Avi Avital and the ensemble Arte Mandolinistica.
