Vivaldi's famous set of four violin concertos certainly ranks among the all-time top ten classical favorites. This Ricordi edition, especially designed for English-speaking markets, makes the music available to keyboard players, with new music engravings. Features include an introduction about the history of The Four Seasons and translations of the four “explanatory sonnets” written by the composer about the concertos. Vivaldi's vivid indications that appear throughout the score have been translated into English. The Italian-only Ricordi edition for piano (50022190 – Le quattro stagioni) has always been a steady seller in the US. This edition in English satisfies an obvious and ready appetite for this great music.

    The Four Seasons is a great piece for the advanced pianist. Thought it's challenging, it is a MUST to play. This arrangement is a good one to play because in every season when the mood changes, it talks about it right above the measure where the mood changes.

  • January 18, 2004 Fun transcription

    The piano transcription retains much of the spirit of the original, and I'd say that a pianist who can do fast runs should find this music enjoyable. Make those violinists jealous!
