"... reactive, novel and fresh-sounding readings."
- Sinfini Music

"Debretzeni sets out to highlight the descriptive aspect of the music by finding many more colours and contrasts in the orchestral texture than are usually heard, and the period instruments give the familiar movements a new attack, making the work sound as fresh today as the day it was written."
- Classic FM

With its vivid poetry and technical ingenuity, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons was groundbreaking at the time of its release and to this day remains as influential and transfixing as ever, one of the most famous and most-recorded classical pieces of all time. On this 2014 album, violinist Kati Debretzeni directs period instrument ensemble the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment in an energetic, historically informed performance. From the commanding heat of the summer sun, to winter’s foreboding darkness, the power of Vivaldi’s masterpiece as interpreted by the OAE is inescapable.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
