Antonio Vivaldi (1678-1741) stands, with Handel and J.S. Bach, as one of the titanic figures of late Baroque composition. Not only was he lauded as a composer of vocal and instrumental works both sacred and secular, he was without doubt, the most prolific composer of his age. In addition to hundreds of vocal works, including forty-nine operas, he composed five hundred concertos. The Four Seasons are probably the best known of his concerti with the second movement, Largo, portraying time spent by a roaring fire listening to the rain pounding against the window. This new arrangement for brass band retains all the warmth of the original.

Die vier Jahreszeiten sind wohl das beruhmteste Werk des italienischen Komponisten Antonio Vivaldi, das nicht nur bei ausgesprochenen Klassik-Fans bekannt und beliebt ist. Philip Sparke bearbeitete das Largo aus dem Satz Winter fur Blasorchester. Eine besonders kreative Auffuhrung gelingt, wenn die ursprunglichen Pizzicato-Passagen der Violine durch optionale Stimmen fur Stabspiele ersetzt werden. Klassik fur jedermann!
