About

In celebration of the Australian Chamber Orchestra's 40th birthday in 2015, BIS announce the release of a new recording of Vivaldi's iconic Four Seasons, conducted by Artistic Director Richard Tognetti.

In 1725 'Il cimento dell’armonia e dell’inventione' (‘The Contest of Harmony and Invention’) would secure Antonio Vivaldi’s reputation for eternity. The first four concertos of this collection form what has become one of the most widely spread classical compositions in the history of music: Le Quattro Stagioni.

Now Richard Tognetti and the Australian Chamber Orchestra, a team internationally recognized for its virtuosity, energy and individuality, has recorded their take on Vivaldi’s springtime birdsong, summer thunderstorm, autumn hunting and chattering teeth of icy winter.

The programme also includes two typically Vivaldian slow movements, a Largo and a Grave, as well as a Sinfonia for strings originally intended as the overture of the opera La verità in cimento (‘Truth in contention’).
